Supporters (2016 – 2017)
Our 200+ different partners include individuals, community organisations, all levels of government, corporate organisations and industry. These relationships bring about mutual benefits and vary from in-kind supporters, organisations who pay a fee-for-service for us to deliver corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, program co-deliverers, grant givers and philanthropic trustees.
We would like to thank everyone who has shown their support to CERES this year, including our regular donors and all those who gave to our Annual Appeal. We couldn’t do it without you.
