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:
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.
