More than 750 Fiji-based employees at The Wonderful Company donated $250,000 to support non-profit organisations this year.

The FIJI Water Foundation, one of the largest philanthropic organisations in Fiji, today shared the transformative impact delivered through its 2023 Wonderful Giving program.

They say through this one-of-a-kind program, all full-time employees are granted an annual amount of company funds to give to non-profits of their choice.

From local organisations and neighbourhood recreation centres to veteran groups and hospitals, the FIJI Water Foundation believes it is important to give back, particularly in the communities where its employees live and work as part of its philanthropic approach to place-based giving.

FIJI Water Foundation Manager Marie Smith says they believe that by listening to, investing in, and collaborating with the places they call home, they can build a brighter, more inclusive future for everyone.

She says the Wonderful Giving program is one of the many ways they support the people of Fiji by providing critical funding that’s focused on education, health and wellness, community development initiatives, and more.

Smith says this year, more than 750 employees at the Wonderful Company participated in the program and collectively donated to 56 non-profit organisations.

She adds the FIJI Water Foundation is a division of the Wonderful Company, a privately held company headquartered in Los Angeles that’s dedicated to offering high-quality, healthy brands and helping communities thrive.

The Manager says together, Fiij-based employees achieved 100 percent participation and have proudly donated over $250,000 to the Wonderful Giving program this year to help build stronger neighbourhoods and uplift those in need.

Some of the 2023 Wonderful Giving recipients in Fiji include the Fiji Cancer Society, Golden Age Home Suva, WOWS Kids Fiji, Father Law Home and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
