Which one will you help support?

A sponsorship process that allows the Tasmanian community to decide who RACT supports.

Every quarter three much deserving charitable organisations are chosen to receive funding through our Community Act of Royalty Program.

These charities are featured in all of our RACT branches and each time a purchase is made by a customer, they receive a token to place in a box nominating one of the three charities to receive funding.

The organisation with the most tokens at the end of the quarter will receive $3000, the organisation that comes second will receive $2000 and the organisation that comes third will receive $1000.  

Charitable organisations wishing to be considered for future participation can apply here and send their application form to sponsorship@ract.com.au.

This quarter our three charities are:

Alannah & Madeline Foundation

On 28 April 1996 at the historical Port Arthur site, 35 people were tragically killed. Alannah and Madeline Mikac, aged six and three, died that day. Because of this terrible act of violence, Alannah and Madeline's father, Walter set up the Foundation with the belief that all children should have a safe and happy childhood without being subjected to any form of violence. The national charity focuses on protecting children from violence and creating behaviour change in the community to reduce bullying and cyber bullying. This year the Alannah & Madeline Foundation marks its 20th anniversary and is proud to have helped 2 million children through its care, prevention and advocacy work.
