Amplifying impact

When: 5 Oct 2022

A team procurement challenge by corporate partners, Amplify, has led to a generous donation of items for Ardoch’s upcoming online auction. This is just another example of the creative and proactive ways our corporate partners throw their support behind our impactful education programs in communities facing disadvantage.

Amplify’s corporate challenge took inspiration from its own work in procurement by setting teams a budget and providing a list of items that they needed to negotiate for the best price.

Marking their four-year “Ampliversary” the scavenger hunt put two teams – the AmpliStars and AmpliRaisers – to the ultimate test. With their negotiating skills in overdrive, both teams managed to procure a list of luxury items, including two bottles of Bollinger, spa vouchers, restaurant vouchers and two Sydney Swans Guernseys.

This is one of many ways the Amplify team has supported Ardoch through innovative and fun corporate fundraisers. The benefits to their team building and team engagement extending through to supporting Ardoch and our work addressing educational gaps in Australian communities.

Well done to both teams for their amazing negotiating efforts!
