The Good Guys Doing Good
Since its humble beginnings in 1953, The Good Guys has been passionate about delighting customers and Doing Good.
Our Doing Good activities and partnerships aim to address important social issues while supporting the development of the local communities in which we operate.
And, because we are Good Guys, we’re also always trying to find ways of assisting those Aussies who just need a hand.
One of those ways now includes an Employee Workplace Giving Program that allows our team members to donate to 14 charity partners.
The Good Guys Doing Good Workplace Giving program started in July 2017 and every dollar donated by our team members is matched by The Good Guys, doubling the positive impact on the charities we support and the community as a whole.
The Good Guys is a proud member of Workplace Giving Australia and supports their goal of reaching 1 million donors.

Through our programs of support and giving, The Good Guys help thousands of Australians across the country every day.
IS THE GOOD GUYS LOOKING FOR MORE CHARITIES TO SUPPORT?
Whilst we undertake an annual review of our charity partners, we prefer to focus our support on a limited number of organisations in order to maximise the benefit to our current commitments.
This assurance provides our charities with the confidence that our ongoing sustainable support will allow them to develop long-term projects and ensures that we help deliver their long-term vision & short term goals together.
