Cotton On Foundation

The Cotton On Foundation was born with a simple mandate – whatever the project or cause, wherever possible we would get involved, not just provide funding. Getting involved could mean physically assisting or volunteering with projects; using the skills and talents of our employees to aid the cause, or running the project ourselves so we could directly impact the time frames and outcomes of the project. The Cotton On Foundation is different to most charities. Hand in hand with our customers we fund projects for some of the most ‘at need’ people of the world. We don’t just write a cheque, we are part of the project from planning, development and delivery. We follow the project and communicate back to everyone who has been involved – employees, customers and advisors.
