Our corporate partnerships are designed on a case by case basis, making sure we match your strategic vision, suit your social responsibility needs, and that we can all work together for a common cause.

What you can do?

Corporations can support Stepping Stone through a range of financial assistance and/or in kind supports:

Philanthropic gift

Philanthropic organisations achieve results that create real social change. Organisations that want to make their mark in the community can do so by making a generous gift or pledging support over a period of time.

Workplace giving donations

Collectively small contributions make a huge difference and achieve amazing outcomes.  Workplace giving can be set up through your organisation’s payroll, as a pre-tax deduction for a prescribed amount per pay period. For more information please contact

Corporate fundraising

Organisational fundraising activities are an easy and fun way to provide financial support and engage staff. Activities such as raffles, casual dress days, bake offs and morning teas are examples of simple and successful corporate fundraising activities.

Become an Employment Partner

Providing support is about more than just money.

Work gives us purpose and connects us to those around us. It builds community and gives meaning to our lives. But for people with mental illnesses, it is difficult to find and keep a good job. Self-doubt and low self-esteem can be compounded by the terrible feelings that come with unemployment. Because of this, employment is one of the fundamental building blocks of the Clubhouse. Stepping Stone strives to give every person who wants it a chance to work at a real job.  You can help us achieve this goal by becoming an Employment Partner, and providing new opportunities to place our members in Transitional, Independent and Supported Employment.
