We are excited to announce that Steadfast Foundation have joined us as our Naming Rights Supporter! Going forward we will be known as the Steadfast Outback Air Race which, coincidentally, shortens to SOAR!
Steadfast and its brokers actively support the communities in which they live and work, typically donating around 1% of net profit after tax to charitable causes each financial year.
Steadfast created the Steadfast Foundation to facilitate grants and charitable contributions that support charities helping people overcome adversity, with $1.3 million in donations made in its first 10 years.
The Steadfast Foundation is guided by the Steadfast Foundation Board which is responsible for reviewing all submissions and will make its funding decisions for the benefit of the community and in alignment with the philosophy of the Foundation.
Charities are often chosen based on the recommendations of members of the Steadfast network and include cancer research and support, mental health, surf lifesaving, children’s causes and charities supporting the homeless and disadvantaged.
Charities supported include BeyondBlue, McGrath Foundation, Surf Life Saving, Salvation Army, Startlight Foundation, Prostate Cancer Foundation and of course, the RFDS.
Thanks to a connection one of our organising committee had with the Steadfast group, we are very proud to have them join us as the event Naming Rights supporter and look forward to working with them over coming months and throughout the race. This is a very exciting connection for us and their support for us and the RFDS, really is incredibly generous.
