Giving Back

People – our own and others – always come first

Behind the scenes, across every area of our business, our branches and teams support every-day activities that put a genuine, fair dinkum face to our values.

For us, it’s simply part of being a good neighbour and member of our local community. And being family-centric. It's a deep-seated belief that we should balance our continued growth and sustainability, with a positive social contribution.

In 2017, we supported charities and community groups across Australia and New Zealand through both financial giving and in-kind equipment donations, donating over $1.2 million direct to charity. Our Kennards for Kids campaign directly generated $317,000 for eight children’s charities: Variety SA & VIC, KidsCan NZ, Queensland Children’s Hospital Foundation, RedKite, Heart Kids, KidSafe NT and Constable Care

Branch Community Work

Getting involved in our local communities is important to Kennards Hire. We’re committed to making our branch neighbourhoods stronger and more inclusive places to live, work and play.

Every branch across our network contributes to local charities, schools, sporting and community groups, through sponsorship, gift vouchers, financial contributions, and free or reduced hire rates.

Our teams are also always on hand to help if a natural disaster hits their area. They get behind moving equipment to and from disaster zones and supporting local recovery programs

Philanthropic Activities

“We want to make sure we are giving back and that it is going to the right place. We want to see people, particularly children, have an opportunity to do better and achieve their goals in life, and that’s what motivates us.”

The purpose of the Kennard Foundation is to make Australia and New Zealand a better place for future generations by significantly improving:

  • The ability of disadvantaged young people to be independent, self-sufficient contributors to society
  • The environment through conservation of land and species

Through the Kennard Foundation we support organisations such as Kids Xpress, Stepping Stone House, Police Citizens Youth Club, BackTrack (a program for country kids at risk in rural NSW) and the Nawarddeken Academy (an aboriginal school in remote Arnhem Land). In 2017, we also announced support of $120,000 to The Smith Family’s Learning for Life program.
