Become a Loaned Executive

A critical part of the Foundation’s Workplace Giving Program, the Loaned Executive Program sees organisations from across the region ‘loan’ their employees to the Foundation to help in the recruitment of Workplace Givers.

Acting as a kind of spokesperson for the Foundation, the Loaned Executive Program is not only the best way (we think) to learn about the challenges faced by our community, but also about our incredible community partners and the change your donations are making.

This is truly a glimpse behind the curtain into the way the Foundation operates – you’ll learn about who we are, how we operate and how the donations raised from Workplace Giving make a truly huge contribution to our community.

“In a year that caused mass disruption across our community, I am grateful for the chance to contribute to the work that supports those experiencing hardship and disadvantage. Meeting grant recipients, and understanding the impact donations have had on their lives, was a humbling experience that further reinforced how important the Give Where You Live Foundation is for the ongoing health of our community.

The Loaned Executive Program is an incredibly rewarding opportunity to lean in to being part of the solution for building a fairer community.”

– Anthony Chirnside, Barwon Water

“The Loaned Executive will at the very least, open your eyes to the challenges of the community. At the same time it will highlight how a small contribution from many can save lives and help people who need it the most.”

– Steve Jackson, AWA Alliance Bank

“I am so grateful for the opportunity to be the GMHBA 2019 Loaned Executive. The program left me with a greater sense of awareness and empathy for the challenges facing some in our local community and I was genuinely shocked to learn of the level of hardship and disadvantage here in Geelong. The ‘Seeing is Believing’ tour was a particular highlight; meeting some of the grant recipients and seeing first-hand the impact donations have.

I was incredibly honoured to be the recipient of the 2019 Gordon Murray Award and am grateful to have been able to play a small role in helping Give Where You Live spread such an important message.”

– Melissa Lewis, GMHBA
