At UXC we want to have a positive impact on the broader community. We do this through the UXC Community Program. We leverage our capabilities and position in the business community to effect positive social change. Rather than limiting ourselves to one-off philanthropic gestures, our people are committed to investing increasing amounts of time, money, and skills in long-term community projects.
A key facet of UXC Community is the support we give to our selected charity partners in the community. We develop strong relationships with these organisations so we can assist them to achieve their humanitarian goals. We have six charity partners in Australia, and three in New Zealand.
Some of the initiatives included in the UXC Community program are:
The Lifeline Australia vision is for a suicide free Australia.

Your donation helps Lifeline answer more calls and save more lives.
The Camp Quality purpose is to create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.

Breast Cancer Cure is New Zealand’s only not-for-profit organisation established solely to support research into breast cancer. Funds raised are allocated to only the most outstanding and visionary research and researchers in New Zealand – our sole criteria being knowledge and breakthroughs in both clinical and genetic research that move us closer towards a CURE and a future free of the fear of breast cancer for New Zealand women, and to protect our next generation of young girls from what their mothers and grandmothers are going through today.
Since it’s establishment, Breast Cancer Cure has funded many significant research projects in New Zealand, totalling in excess of $7 million in grants. This total includes the funding of a Chair in Breast Cancer at the Auckland University School of Medicine – a huge milestone in accelerating the quality of research into diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer in New Zealand. Some of the New Zealand institutions to benefit from Breast Cancer Cure’s work include the University of Canterbury, the University of Otago, The Liggins Institute in Auckland and the Malaghan Institute in Wellington.

The cornerstone project of the Charity in New Zealand is the four Ronald McDonald Houses; two in Auckland and one Wellington and Christchurch. Each year these Houses care for thousands of families of children undergoing hospital treatment at Auckland Children’s Hospital (Starship), Wellington Hospital or at one of Christchurch’s Hospitals.
