Community for connection and purpose
Playing an active role in our shared communities gives us a strong sense of purpose, allows us to live our values and give back to the world that supports us, and reminds us of the bigger picture outside of our daily work. It’s part of who we are and what makes us Rowland.
Since 1994, our dedicated Rowland Helping Hand program has supported more than 200 not-for-profit organisations via pro bono work, volunteering, fundraising, in-kind support and donations.
These organisations are very close to our heart and include St Vincent de Paul Society and the Vinnies’ CEO Sleepout, Youngcare, Yalari, Foodbank, National Trust, Police Citizens’ Youth Club Queensland, Queensland Community Foundation, RSPCA Queensland, World Vision, Green and Gold Athletes, and The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust, to name a few. Team members at all levels of the organisation are regularly involved.
We also facilitate introductions, partnerships and business relationships for our Rowland Helping Hand recipients — connecting them with business and industry leaders who in turn can support their efforts and make a difference at a local level.
Additionally, many of our team members sit on the boards and committees of various school, community and not for profit organisations.
As a locally owned and operated business, we also understand the importance of supporting other local businesses and the economy: we proudly report that more than 95% of our suppliers are locally based.
