On Wednesday night, at a gala event in celebration of their 70th anniversary, family-owned Australian equipment hire business Kennards Hire launched the Kennards Hire Foundation. Its inaugural gift will see the new foundation donate $7 million over the next five years to its nominated charities.
The vision of the Foundation is to make both Australia and New Zealand a better place for future generations by significantly improving the ability of disadvantaged young children to be independent, self-sufficient contributors to society. In conjunction, the Kennards Hire Foundation will fund conservation projects for both land and species, to support a vision of a better world for future generations.
The Kennards Hire Foundation will be donating to a wide array of children’s charity organisations, including Stepping Stone House, the Smith Family Learning for Life Program, Kids Xpress, BackTrack, Nawarddeken Academy in Australia. KidsCan and the Springboard Community Works will be the first recipients in New Zealand.
