Community

DNR Capital has a humble approach to corporate social responsibility. We make a positive contribution to several charitable organisations that are important to the team. Support may be in the form of financial support, staff volunteer days through to in-kind product and service offerings.

One of our core values is to positively contribute to our community.

We do this is by supporting organisations and causes that are important to our people. In particular DNR Capital seeks to support charities making a positive difference in the areas of mental health, youth and disability.

We have a workplace giving program where staff donations from their pre-tax salaries are matched by the Company. In this program we support Beyond Blue and St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland.

Beyond Blue is Australia’s most well-known and visited mental health organisation, focused on supporting people affected by anxiety, depression and suicide. Beyond Blue provide information and support to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.

St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland (‘Vinnies’) is an international, voluntary, lay Catholic organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and disadvantage by providing assistance to anyone in need. The works of Vinnies include: housing and homeless support, age and disability services, mental health services, drug and alcohol recovery services, financial wellbeing services, family support centres, disaster relief, food distribution, centres of charities, child and family support services, migrant and refugee services, youth services, education and employment services and special works.

We also partner with Happy Paws Happy Hearts in a work skills program.

Happy Paws Happy Hearts (HPHH) is a Queensland-based charity which runs unique animal therapy programs for socially isolated Australians. The organisation has been particularly impactful for young people with physical or mental health injuries. Rather than follow the traditional approach of training “pets” to visit people in homes, HPHH does the reverse and brings participants to rescue shelters to work with animals on their own recovery journeys. It’s through this purposeful work participants build new skills, new friendships and new pathways for their lives.
