Bunnings is committed to participating in the communities in which we operate by contributing to local, regional and national causes, charities and organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand. During the 2021 financial year our team supported over 51,000 local community activities helping raise and contribute more than $27.4 million for community groups.

As part of our commitment to meaningful and active participation in the community, our stores provide ongoing assistance to a wide range of local community groups including:

  • schools and kindergartens
  • local sporting groups
  • service clubs (Lions, Rotary etc.)
  • local community groups that assist the disadvantaged
  • local health and wellbeing
  • junior community groups (scouts, girl guides etc.).

 

 

Our preference at Bunnings is to support local community groups by providing hands-on assistance with their projects. Wherever possible, our teams take the opportunity to get out into the community and help with grassroots projects, like assisting with garden makeovers and providing D.I.Y. support. We also regularly donate products for community activities including raffles and fundraising events.

Requests for hands-on support should be made in writing on the community or charitable organisation’s original letterhead, and sent to your nearest Bunnings store, to the attention of the Activities Organiser.

Bunnings team members regularly conduct D.I.Y. Workshops for local community groups, like schools and kindergartens, nursing homes and hospitals.

Our teams can head out and visit a community group, or welcome a community group into the D.I.Y. area for a workshop.

Workshops are tailored for the needs of each community group and can include gardening, craft, woodwork, water and energy saving activities, as well as kids activities. 

Please contact the Activities Organiser at your local Bunnings store to discuss how the team might be able to support your community group.

In recognition of National Police Remembrance Day on 29 September, Bunnings will donate over $250,000 to Police Legacy charities across Australia and the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation to support their important work.
Thanks to community generosity over $1.25 million was fundraised for Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale campaign in August 2018. These funds will provide livestock feed and household essentials for drought affected families and communities in every impacted state. This incredible amount would not have been possible without the amazing contributions from many individuals, local businesses and our team. Thank you!
Bunnings stores support their local emergency services groups throughout the year, and join together to raise funds for local volunteer fire brigades and emergency services through the annual Emergency Services Volunteers BBQ. On Saturday 20 January 2018, through the generous support of customers, volunteers and team members, over $530,000 was raised and contributed nationally.
Our stores conduct many of activities with local schools and kindergartens, including our Schools Sustainability Program, Grow Your Own gardening activities and a range of other initiatives.
Our support of local organisations and causes include Lions Australia, Rotary, Girl Guides, Scouts Australia, The Salvation Army and Men’s Sheds. Throughout the year stores also completed many activities supporting local sporting groups.
Our team members actively support groups such as Legacy and the RSL. In particular, stores invite local groups in-store to raise funds through the sale of ANZAC badges in April and poppies in November, as well as provide hands-on assistance such as maintaining memorials and shrines.
Local senior citizen groups are assisted through contributions and projects including garden makeovers, upkeep for aged care facilities, Meals on Wheels and D.I.Y. Workshops. Our team members also support local health and wellbeing groups throughout the year.
