Statewide Super endeavours to make a real difference in the world, to our communities, our environment, our employees and most importantly, our members.
At Statewide Super supporting our local communities, our employers and our members is core to our identity. Through active involvement with a number of not-for-profit organisations and community initiatives, we give back to the communities that help our members flourish.
As a leader within the superannuation sector, we are committed to driving change for those disadvantaged within our society, in order to create better futures for all.
Statewide Super places great importance on the support of local community organisations and not-for-profit charities and in being leaders and advocates for issues that are important within the South Australian community.
Statewide Super partners with several organisations that are making significant contributions to communities which can be viewed here.
Statewide Super are passionate supporters of local not-for-profit organisation CFS Foundation. The Foundation provides financial assistance and care to CFS volunteer firefighters and their families to offset suffering and distress caused in the line of duty. The Foundation relies on donations from the community and with the recent devastation caused by the Australian bushfires, there has never been a more important time to support our volunteers. To donate please head to: cfsfoundation.org.au/donate/.
KickStart for Kids - School Breakfast Program & Annual No Breakfast (Breakfast) Fundraiser
Since 2015, Statewide Super has supported KSFK by participating in various activities to help underprivileged children throughout South Australia.
Their School Breakfast Program which services over 350 schools in South Australia, delivers breakfast to underprivileged children. Our staff undertake a DCSI Police Check and Report of Abuse and Neglect Training in order to become a part of this Volunteer Program.
We are supporters of their annual fundraiser No-Breakfast Breakfast, attended by over 1,000 people annually and our partnership has also extended to KSFK being named the charity partner of the SANFL Statewide Super league and we regularly invite KSFK to events that are fundraising opportunities for the charity.
National Breast Cancer Foundation - Mother's Day Classic
Statewide Super is a proud long-term sponsor of the Adelaide Mother's Day Classic walk/run, organised by Women in Super in order to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Our staff participate in the event annually, and we provide promotional items for donations on the day, to raise funds for the NBCF.
Equality for First Australians
It is our vision that all Australians have the same opportunities for engagement with and access to their superannuation, so they can live their best retirement.
At Statewide Super, our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is enabling us to improve the engagement, education, communication and delivery of superannuation services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. As a result, our aim is that First Australians will be able to more effectively plan, prepare and build wealth for their retirement. Head over to our Reconciliation Action Plan page to read more about our RAP journey.
Making a difference through our employees
Statewide Super is proud that employee charitable donations are matched dollar for dollar by the fund. We encourage staff to support a range of charities that we feel are making a significant positive impact on our communities - both nationally and internationally.
Statewide Super employees are provided with volunteer leave to undertake a range of community and environmental-based activities which are organised on a regular basis. This includes our annual commitment to the KickStart for Kids breakfast program and various other individual charities that our staff are personally involved in.
Statewide Super is committed to environmental and social responsibility, helping to build more sustainable communities and take actions that will have a positive environmental impact. You can read more about how we are achieving that here.
