Sponsorships and Donations

AusNet Services is passionate about partnering with the communities in which we operate to deliver projects that have a wide range of sustainable community benefits. 

Each year our sponsorships and donations strategy is reviewed to ensure it is aligned with our values and corporate strategy, and offers the right level of support through sponsorships, donations, community development programs, employee volunteering grants and energy industry education.
As well as monitoring what's happening in our communities and supporting one-off projects, we also have long-term sponsorship partnerships with:

We recognise the irreplaceable role that charities play across Australia. That’s why we empower our employees to donate to a variety of charities. As part of our Workplace Giving Program, our people donate tens of thousands of dollars per year to:
