North Queensland Cowboys
Our silver sponsorship alignment with the Cowboys allows us to engage with our local communities, as well as align with a fantastic football team.
This community-focussed organisation enjoyed a history-making season in 2015, winning the NRL Premiership, and we look forward to another great year in partnership in 2019.
Gold Coast SUNS
As an official partner, we look forward to supporting the Gold Coast-based AFL club over the next two years.
The Gold Coast SUNS have been an integral part of both the Gold Coast and wider Queensland community since 2009, with a strong focus on key community projects tackling domestic violence, youth homelessness and regional needs with a drive to promote diversity, indigenous programs and multiculturalism.
Zarraffa’s Coffee is proud to be part of the unfolding success story that is the Gold Coast SUNS.
Major Charity Partners
The Zarraffa’s Foundation works with many grassroots, community and charitable organisations of all sizes, across the breadth of our store territories and internationally.
Here are some of our major, long term partnerships:
Act For Kids
Act for Kids is an Australian charity working tirelessly to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect.
Established in 1988 (and formerly named the Abused Child Trust), Act for Kids has helped countless children to overcome their experiences through free intensive therapy, to help kids overcome their experiences of abuse and neglect, and support services for families at risk.
Zarraffa’s support has helped Act for Kids to expand into new regions, ensuring they can reach out to more abused and neglected children. In 2014, Act for Kids started delivering services in NSW, opening the first dedicated Child and Family Centre of Excellence in Townsville.
The partnership with Act for Kids supports this important work as they grow services nationally, to ensure all kids can have a safe and happy childhood, free from abuse and neglect.
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy sits at the base of Mount Kenya in Africa, next to the Meru Coffee Co-op where we source some of our specialty coffee beans.
Lewa serves as a safe refuge for the critically endangered black rhino and the endangered Grevy’s zebra, as well as the elephant, lion, giraffe, wild dog and other iconic wildlife species in Kenya. The Conservancy is also home to more than 400 species of birds.
The Zarraffa’s Foundation supports the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy as a major financial contributor to ensure the continued conservation of the native wildlife in Northern Kenya.
Il Ngwesi Lodge
The Il Ngwesi Lodge is the first lodge of its kind in Kenya, owned and operated by the local community.
The lodge aims to combine eco-tourism and sustainability with community development. Profits from the lodge support a range of community projects, including wildlife conservation, education programs, health and infrastructure, entrepreneurship, agricultural development and preserving the culture and history of the six local Maasai villages.
The Zarraffa’s Foundation supports the Il Ngwesi Community Conservation through upgraded infrastructure and tourism.
