  • At Capricorn we love to be able to give back to our community. While Capricorn as a business does not sponsor charities directly, we encourage our staff to participate in various fundraising activities. 

    These are just some of the latest staff initiatives.

    Movember Foundation

    Throughout the month of November each year, Capricorn raises funds for the Movember Foundation. The Movember Foundation is the only global charity solely focused on men’s health. Funds raised go towards delivering innovative, breakthrough research and support programs to enable men to live happier, healthier and longer lives. 

    In 2016 we participated in a range of activities including a fun run, breakfast barbecues, sausage sizzles and a sponsored moustache shave off, and managed to raise a whopping $2,500!

    Shenton Park Dog Refuge

    We are raising funds through our casual Friday's in 2017 to go towards the Shenton Park Dog's Refuge Home, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, care and re-homing of dogs. They have a pro-life policy, which ensures that no dog will be euthanised on economic grounds. Every year they take in many hundreds of dogs that have been abused, neglected or simply no longer wanted. Without your donations they are unable to provide vital care to these beautiful dogs. Staff make a gold coin donation each Friday in order to wear casual dress and each dollar go towards this great cause.

    Ronald McDonald House

    As a team building activity, and to give back to the local community, both our Perth and Sydney teams have been to the Ronald McDonal House to bake for the families residing there, and lend a hand and an ear. The Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for seriously ill children and their families

    World Vision Sponsorship

    In 2016 the Sydney office donated their casual Friday fundraising profits to World Vision to go towards clean drinking water. The donation helped a community protect their children from disease, installing new wells and repairing water pumps to improve hygiene and help work towards a healthier future.

    Biggest Morning Tea

    We love to get our resident bakers together each year for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, to raise funds for the Cancer Council. The Cancer Council is the leading charity in Australia raising funding vital research, prevention programs, advocacy and support services for those affected by cancer.

    In 2017, we put together quite the spread of delicious treats and together raised $580.

    Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades

    WA is privileged to have over 26,000 volunteer Bush Fire Fighters who give their time freely help communities protect life and property against many hazards inlcuding bushfire. The Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades of WA Incorporated (or AVBFB), is the advocacy agency for the State’s Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades and their volunteers. In 2016 Capricorn raised money from our casual Friday gold coin donations to go towards the AVBFB.

    HBF Run for a Reason

    Each year Capricorn registers a team of staff in the annual HBF Run for a Reason. Staff members are encouraged to choose a cause close to their own hearts and join their fellow team members in the biggest charity fun run in Australia

    Solar Panel Project

    Capricorn undertook a project to make our head office in Perth more environmentally friendly by installing 320 solar panels on our roof. We strive to become more eco-friendly and use renewable sources of energy where we can
