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.
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.
Sausage Sizzles and Fundraising Opportunities
In the interests of our customers, team members and community members, Bunnings sausage sizzles and cake stalls across Australia and New Zealand have been temporarily suspended until further notice, from 18 March 2020.
Bunnings sincerely apologises for any disappointment; our stores will remain open and we will continue to follow the advice of the Australian and New Zealand Governments relating to this.
Community groups who have an upcoming sausage sizzle are encouraged to contact the Activities Organiser at their local Bunnings store for further information.
D.I.Y. Workshops and In-store Activities
Please contact the Activities Organiser at your local Bunnings store to discuss how the team might be able to support your community group.
We have partnered with the Australian Museum on their FrogID Program. Bunnings’ goal is to engage with local schools by building a frog pond to provide frogs with a safe home and raise awareness around the importance of having frogs in our environment. Frog calls can be recorded using the Australian Museum’s FrogID app. Check out the FrogID webpage for more information or our ‘How To Build A Frog Pond’ page here. Schools are welcome to contact the Activities Organiser at their local store to discuss this program.
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.
