Social Procurement in Action
Let’s say your favourite charity is Oz Harvest where $1 donated equals two meals provided to Australia’s disadvantaged. Here’s the CSR amplification impact.
We have ten supplier categories. Here is an example of how just three category spends can make a tangible social impact.
|Supplier Category||Product/ Service Purchased||Equivalent donation|
|Stationery & Office Products||Usual spend $50,000pa||2,500 meals/year|
|Business Insurance||Business Pro Pack|
|Telco and IT||50 phone licenses||250 meals upfront +|

Charitable giving makes up only 1% of Australia’s GDP. Non-profits must compete for this small pot of funds by dedicating time and resources to fundraising instead of their actual cause.
The remaining 99% of GDP is made up of everyday spending goods and services by business and consumers. What if your business or school could support your favourite charity through your existing procurement spend?
Corporate Spend connects the regular expenditure of businesses and schools like yours with high quality vetted ethical suppliers of goods and services.
In turn, these suppliers agree to direct a percentage of revenue from your company’s purchases to the Corporate Spend fund.
As a social enterprise, the Corporate Spend fund distributes a minimum of 80% of our profits to charities with Deductible Gift Recipients (DGR) status.
When you buy from our ethical suppliers, you get to choose the charities that benefit.
It can’t get much better than that!
