Flight Centre Foundation returns
the Flight Centre Foundation (FCF) has been reactivated after an 18-month hiatus, with the company conceding its charitable arm may “look a little different” while the company strives to return to profitability.
The next step of the relaunch will see the FCF select which philanthropic cause it wishes to support, with Flight Centre flagging the final decision would be determined on the basis of “the biggest impact in the places where we work, live and travel”.
The foundation had previously encouraged its employees to donate to charities by matching their generosity dollar-for-dollar, as well as running a paid program for staff who want to volunteer their time to various charities and community organisations.
Up until 2015, FCF had donated up to $7.7 million since its inception, for more details on the initiative, click heRe.
