We plan to be out and about visiting various workplaces around Ballarat over the next few months to talk about Workplace Giving.If your workplace would like a visit please don’t hesitate to call our Office Coordinator Karyn or our Supporter Engagement Coordinator Ange to arrange a convenient time.

We’d love you to:
