Community Investment

Myer is committed to supporting the long-term health and well-being of our local communities. Our Community Investment program forms part of our commitment to building strong and meaningful relationships with our local communities, and builds on the philanthropic work of company founder, Sidney Myer

Continuing Sidney Myer’s tradition of giving, we believe that engaging with and contributing to the communities in which we live, work and operate, will lead to a more sustainable future. By investing in our local communities, Myer can have a positive social impact and make a lasting contribution to the lives of the people who we interact with every day.

As an iconic Australian company, Myer has an opportunity to address the challenges facing society. With our strong brand and wide reach, Myer is in a unique position to raise awareness among our communities and form partnerships to help tackle these issues.

Partnerships with Myer

We focus on building long-term partnerships with carefully selected charities in order to maximise our impact. Our commitment to local communities involves financial and in kind contributions as well as our team members volunteering their time and skills.

Read about our current community partnerships

In order to maximise our impact on our selected charity partners and the communities they support, all Myer corporate, staff and customer giving activities are focussed on our key strategic partners and the Myer Stores Community Fund charity partners.

Myer receives many enquiries each week from various community organisations, charities and individuals requesting product and cash donations, and unfortunately we are unable to support request of this nature.

The Myer Community Program does not provide support or funding for:

  • Political or religious activities
  • Individuals, families or 3rd party fundraisers (directly or for fundraising purposes)
  • Organisations or projects that occur outside of Australia
  • Programs that may present a hazard to the community or the environment
  • Programs or initiatives that may be construed as prejudiced or discriminatory
