Making a positive difference to our communities

We are committed to supporting the communities where our customers and team members live and work.

We encourage our stores to get involved with groups and projects that work to improve children's education, health and wellbeing and help support local community groups.

Local community support

Officeworks is always looking for community organisations and events to support at a local level. We offer BBQs for fundraising, donations (primarily through giving products, Officeworks gift cards) as well as offering team member time. To ensure we have a clear direction, we prioritise supporting the following categories:


Activities that support educational opportunities eg. schools, clubs, scouts and guide groups.

Environmental Sustainability

Activities that are committed to positive environmental changes eg. recycling programs or charities.


Activities that enhance the way our local community works ventures. eg. aged-care centres or not-for-profit.

Health and wellbeing

Activities that encourage healthy and active living, particularly for children eg. sporting clubs or team events.

We offer support to our communities on three different levels

1. Sausage Sizzle Fundraising Service (At available stores)

If you need assistance to raise funds and you're a not for profit community group, running a sausage sizzle fundraiser would be a great way to raise money and create awareness about your community group.

To apply to use your local Officeworks store barbeque and learn more about this service, please enquire at your local store. To find your nearest store, utilise our Store locator.

2. Local donations

As our teams live and work in their local communities, they are best placed to make a decision about how they support their local community. So please get in touch with your local Officeworks store to discuss your opportunity.

To apply for a local store donation, simply provide a letter outlining your request, on formal letterhead, to the Store Business Manager.

Your request needs to include the following details:

  • Who you are. Describe your organisation's goals and activities.
  • Why we should get involved.
  • Key details of your sponsorship/donation request.
  • Timelines and any important deadlines.

Please note, the store may not be in a position to help in the exact way that you have requested, but all applications are carefully considered and stores will do their very best to assist in some way.

To find your nearest store, please utilise our Store locator.

3. National or State based organisations

Wall of Hands – The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation

At Officeworks, we support students of all ages and locations around Australia by providing the tools to help them succeed. Our team members have the knowledge and advice to assist our customers with all their educational needs and we work with schools to build strong partnerships and help with fundraising.

In celebration of International Literacy Day in September each year, Officeworks supports the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation’s (ALNF) ‘Wall of Hands’ initiative by asking the local communities to ‘raise their hand for literacy’ in store at Officeworks. In September 2015, we raised more than $83,000 to help the ALNF implement its life-changing literacy programs in marginalised communities.

You can help by joining our ‘Wall of Hands’ in store this September or by making a donation at the checkout when purchasing online.

ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day - RSL

Giving back to the communities in which we operate is important to all of our team members. During November and April, we support the RSL by selling badges in store to raise valuable funds for the veterans.

We have supported the RSL for more than six years by selling ANZAC Day badges throughout April and poppy pins during November for Remembrance Day. The valuable funds raised are used by the RSL to help support veterans, retired soldiers and their families.
