Max Coaching Clients

We will sponsor any client of Max Coaching, past or present to maximum of $50.00 per event; who participates in a fundraising event or activity.

Philanthropy Policy

We are committed to responsible business practise and this policy outlines our approach to donations and non-commercial sponsorship. Our approach to donating reflects our culture. We focus on campaigns and/or projects which are in line with our core values of:

  • helping people to create a satisfying, purposeful and financially stable life through positive vocational engagement;
  • professionalism and quality;
  • community; and
  • integrity.

Guiding Principles

These are the key principles which guide our decisions on whether to donate money, or to sponsor events. There must be:

  • a relationship and connection with the Max Coaching community;
  • an appropriate fit with our brand and company values; and
  • support for not-for-profit organisations.

We support projects that are:

  • aligned with our core values;
  • driven by established, reputable fundraising organisations and supported by the relevant authorities; and
  • operated by not for profit organisations.

We do not support projects that:

  • any government should be responsible for, eg building of infrastructure or public buildings;
  • are administered by commercial organisations to gain profit from the event;
  • are illegal or unethical;
  • are administered by an organisation not endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office
  • have a clear political or religious agenda.

Decision Making

The Managing Director and Practice Manager are responsible for deciding on the recipient and donation amount; within an established annual budget.
