Together we create lasting change
At CUFA, we are grateful to our Partners for the support of our work aimed at empowering and giving a voice to the poorest communities of the Asia-Pacific region.
When you decide to partner with CUFA, we will spend the time to get to know you, find out how you’d like to be involved and how together we can maximize the benefits of the partnership to meet your Corporate Social Responsibility objectives.
A tailor-made partnership with a trusted and proven development agency will resonate with your company’s values, brand and who you are as a corporate citizen. It is also a key part of how CUFA creates lasting change for people living on less than $1.90 a day, bringing $8.07 of social return on every $1 invested into CUFA’s work.
CSR & Reputation
Corporate donations are fully tax-deductible and can also provide much needed tax-relief and incentives. We can tailor giving arrangements based on what you seek from the partnership. We will also acknowledge your support for a particular thematic area of CUFA’s work, provide content and publicity opportunities, and create/share/celebrate content related to the partnership and the outcomes of the support, etc.
If you trade internationally or plan to move into Asia-Pacific in the future, these communities are a potential market for your company. Investing in the economic development of your future customers or client markets has shown countless times to reap great rewards. Philanthropy and community involvement is a great way to launch and introduce a new product or service into an emerging market.

CUFA combats poverty and empowers people in the Asia-Pacific region. We have local offices in Australia, Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Myanmar, Fiji and AR Bougainville, but we need support of our partners in Australia and overseas to help more people break free of poverty. Grant giving is a great way to contribute to alleviating poverty in the Asia-Pacific region, at the same time meeting your goals and stakeholders’ expectations.
Workplace giving is an easy and simple way for your company’s employees to help the communities in the Asia-Pacific region that CUFA works with. You can choose to ‘match’ these employees’ donations, double or even triple them. You can also match a percentage of their donations. Workplace/Match Giving will increases your company’s overall impact and demonstrate your combined dedication to the cause.
Staff Engagement & Fundraising
Fundraising activities give your business the opportunity to encourage team-building, boost staff morale and engagement, while making a real difference to people living in poverty. There are many ways you can fundraise for CUFA. For example: run a golf or sporting day, host other events, send your corporate team overseas to one of the CUFA’s challenges, donate a percentage of sales from your business and share your commitment and generosity with your staff and customers, etc.
Development & Volunteering
In addition to philanthropic giving, a great way to utilise your corporate partnership with CUFA is by engaging your employees in overseas volunteering and professional development tours. This is a unique opportunity for corporate staff to visit and engage with our development projects in Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Fiji and Myanmar. These eye-opening experiences are a great way to enhance leadership skills, boost morale and motivation and improve staff engagement and retention.
