Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) through its Brighter Futures program, implements its corporate social responsibility commitments through the four pillars of:

Worldwise – delivering responsible travel;

FCTG People – delivering positive diversity practices and egalitarianism;

Flight Centre Foundation – delivering empowered giving; and

Environmental Sustainability – delivering best practice in environmental protection.

The Flight Centre Foundation is the heart of the FCTG’s corporate and social responsibility strategy. It provides company employees with a means to support nominated charities through workplace giving and fundraising initiatives. All staff donations are matched dollar-for-dollar by the company, which also offers a paid program for employees who want to volunteer their time to community charities.

The partner charities currently supported by the Flight Centre Foundation are non-political and receive limited or no support from government or corporate bodies. They include Bush Heritage Australia (dedicated to protecting Australia’s unique animals, plants and habitats); Foodbank Australia (distributes donated and surplus food from the food and grocery industry to welfare and community agencies that provide food assistance to people in need);  Redkite (supports children and young people with cancer); (empowers people to connect with those around them and support anyone struggling with life); and Youngcare (developing age-appropriate housing solutions for young people with high-care needs) .

and also support work in the region via Cambodian Children’s Trust (empowers vulnerable children to escape poverty through family preservation, education, deinstitutionalisation); and KTF (advancing education, health, livelihoods and leadership in Papua New Guinea). Accumulated funds also support important causes and emergency relief, with significant contributions made to the Queensland flood ($3.3 million) and Christchurch earthquake (NZ$1 million) appeals.
