AskRIGHT knows we wouldn’t exist without the communities in which we operate here in Australia, New Zealand and beyond. We want to be the best corporate citizens we can be and for this reason, we undertake a number of activities to be recognised as a sustainable, responsible organisation.
At AskRIGHT we do whatever we can to minimise our impact on our environment.
Our fundraising consultants based outside of our Brisbane head office work in shared spaces or home offices, reducing our carbon footprint. We make extensive use of video-conferencing and webinars to reduce air travel of our staff and clients.
We are committed to reducing paper consumption to decrease our environmental footprint:
– we have invested in an online subscription solution for our PAF Guide
– we plan to reduce the amount of internal stationery
– we encourage our employees to follow sustainable printing paper best practices (double sided printing, short email signatures & disclaimers, etc.)
Pro Bono clients
Each year our fundraising consultants and staff choose an organisation as our official pro bono client for which all consulting and research fees are waived.
2015 pro bono client
This year our pro bono client is the Queensland Association of Independent Legal Services (QAILS), the state’s peak body for community-based legal centres. Through QAILS we hope to provide benefit to many legal services that provide access to the law for many disadvantaged people.
AskRIGHT fundraising consultants, researchers and support staff serve as volunteers and board members to a range of community-based organisations. Further information can be found in individual staff profiles.
