What does a Mater Foundation partnership look like?
Sponsorship of Events
We deliver many events across the year supporting vital causes within our community.
Sponsorship of Mater Foundation events provide brand alignment and engagement with community, staff and key stakeholders. We connect your brand with thousands of participants, supporters and engaged community members to affirm a positive brand sentiment and alignment to deliver on marketing and brand metrics, in a positive and cost-effective way.

The International Women’s Day Fun Run engages with over 20,000 participants in the Brisbane CBD, and connects with supporters nationally via our virtual event. This event raises funds in support Mater Chicks in Pink and breast cancer care and research at Mater.
Mater Smiling for Smiddy Challenge
The Smiddy Challenge is an ideal networking, team-building and relationship management opportunity both for confident and emerging cyclists (also with volunteer ‘road crew’ availabilities).

Cycle for Cancer
A week long virtual cycle challenge for all ages and abilities with over 1,000 participants – providing an opportunity for broader community and stakeholder involvement right across Australia.
Fundraising in a different way
We partner with some of Australia’s most-loved brands to fundraise outside of the box. From co-branded product lines such as our Louenhide X Chicks in Pink Range through to Hastings Deering and their pink CAT 299C Compact Track Loader for hire partnership, we can link your brand or product to drive sales or positively influence customer perceptions.
Brands such as Costco, BIG W and Drakes deliverer in-store token campaigns to raise significant funds for our tiniest and most vulnerable patients supporting Mater Little Miracles.
In 2022, Plantation Homes will support Mater Little Miracles by building their 9th House for Life, delivering a record $1,489,000 sales result.
We can work with you to ensure delivery of a successful and mutually beneficial campaign that is fully tailored to the needs of your business, its people and integrated with your marketing objectives.
