UnLtd – a social purpose organisation connecting the media, marketing and creative industries with charities helping children and young people at risk – has announced a record $8.7 million total industry contribution to social impact in FY17 as part of its annual results, released today.
The total value of funds, services, inventory and time donated by the media, marketing and creative sectors increased by 34 per cent from the previous financial year, thanks to an increased number of corporate partners, introduction of new events, as well as deepened engagement with core social impact partners.
