Forum in the Community
Forum is passionate about supporting the Australian community and has established genuine partnerships with a number of charities across the country.
Cerebral Palsy Alliance
Forum has been a longtime supporter of Cerebral Palsy Alliance and has become a major sponsor of the charity’s ‘Might and Power Race Day’. Since 2011 Forum has shown its support with the ‘Forum Group Sprint’ contributing to the overall fundraising effort which goes directly to children with cerebral palsy in rural areas of NSW, increasing services and the quality of their everyday lives.
Forum CEO, Bill Papas has been a member of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance CBD Golf Escape Fundraising Board, since 2008. The CBD Golf Escape has become one of Australia’s highest-grossing fundraising events, raising more than $1.5 million in 2017.
Forum is proud to support Cahoots (formerly Kids’ Camps), a charity that has been supporting children with disabilities and their families in Western Australia for over 30 years.
Cahoots runs programs and camps for people above the age of 5 living with a disability. Cahoots’ programs aim to build self-confidence, develop independence and social skills for people living with a disability through exciting and rewarding programs and camps.
Since 2017, the Forum team have participated in the annual Central Park Plunge. Members of the Forum abseil 220 metres down the side of Perth’s tallest building, Central Park on St George’s Terrace, helping to raise more than half a million dollars for the participating charities: Cahoots, Ronald McDonald House, Fiona Wood Foundation and Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
Guide Dogs NSW/ACT
In 2018, Forum became the first corporate sponsor of Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
Guide Dogs NSW/ACT is the leading provider of Guide Dogs and orientation and mobility services that enable people with impaired vision to get around their communities safely and independently. Each year their highly trained Orientation and Mobility specialists work with around 4,000 people of all ages to help them achieve their mobility goals.
We look forward to working with the team at Guide Dogs NSW/ACT to further support this worthy organisation.
