TechnologyOne raises more than $68,000 for Tsunami Appeal

Technology One has responded to the Asian Tsunami Appeal to raise an astonishing $68,483.70 for World Vision. The money will help World Vision rebuild infrastructure, provide community and social rehabilitation and assist people to rebuild their livelihoods for economic recovery. 

Executive Chairman Adrian Di Marco said both he and the company’s staff were deeply affected by the tragedy, which was one of the largest disasters in our lifetime. He set a challenge for staff early January with an offer to match every dollar raised by staff with two dollars from the company. 

"Our staff’s response to this appeal was astonishing – in less than three weeks they donated $22,827.90 to World Vision, which when matched two for one by the company equated to over $68,000," Mr Di Marco said. 

"This is an extraordinary effort for a company of our size, and goes to show what a fantastic group of people we have working at Technology One," he said. 

Technology One has had a long held belief that it has a corporate social responsibility to give back to the community. The company has a strong set of values that underpin its everyday activities – attitude to clients and staff, transparency, high ethical standards and giving back to the community. 

The company provides much needed donations and support to community-based and educational organisations each year. In 2004, these included the Salvation Army, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Starlight Children’s Foundation.
