NAB Calls for a Cause 2017
About Camp Quality and NAB Business NSW/ACT
Camp Quality is very proud of the partnership it shares with NAB Business NSW/ACT and is very excited to be partnering for the fifth year in a row!
Since teaming up, NAB Business NSW/ACT has raised over $2.2 million dollars for Camp Quality, which has helped make a significant difference to the lives of children living with cancer and their families in NSW and the ACT.
Last year, their support allowed us to deliver our Primary School Education Program to 31,831 NSW and ACT primary school children. Additionally, close to 250 children were able to attend one of our Junior Camps in NSW and ACT to take a break from the stresses of cancer and develop life-long optimism and resilience building skills.
About Calls for a Cause
One of the major ways NAB Business NSW/ACT supports Camp Quality is through Calls for a Cause; a unique fundraising initiative that is supported by staff and clients.
Calls for a Cause involves bankers within business centres across NSW and the ACT allocating a set day to make calls to their customers, inviting them to make a donation to Camp Quality.
Calls for a Cause was first brought to life by NAB Business NSW/ACT in the South West Sydney region and each year, the campaign continues to grow – with the campaign now extending to include 5 regions and 23 business banking centres across NSW and ACT.
About Camp Quality's Primary School Education Program
Our Primary School Education Program is designed to teach school communities how to create a supportive environment for children returning to school after their treatment for cancer. It also supports children who have a parent or loved one diagnosed with cancer.
We provide a touring puppet show free of charge to schools where there is a request made from a social worker, parent or teacher. The show is seen by an average of 223,435 people each year across Australia.
What we want to achieve in 2017
For 2016/2017, Camp Quality and NAB Business NSW/ACT have set a target of raising an incredible $750,000, which will support thousands of children living with cancer.
Funds raised will be directed to Camp Quality’s wide-reaching education program in NSW and the ACT and provide an opportunity for children living with cancer to discover their own individual strengths and develop life-long skills at our Junior Camps.
Together, Camp Quality and NAB Business NSW/ACT will take part in a number of staff engagement opportunities at camps and participate in a number of workplace volunteering opportunities and fundraising initiatives.
