Through IGA Community Chest we’ve raised well over $80m to help local communities

Every day across the country IGA Community Chest raises funds to support local communities, charities and other worthwhile causes. It could be in response to a major event like floods or bush fires or something as simple as new soccer balls for the local under 8’s.

The money is raised in a number of ways but predominately through the purchase of products with an IGA Community Chest logo on the label.

Community Chest Products

The IGA Signature range has been developed by sourcing Australian made where possible and benchmarking every product to ensure its quality.

With an extensive range including tasty treats, snacks and meal options to household necessities and toiletries.
The IGA Community Chest logo signifies that with every IGA Signature product sold 2 cents is donated to IGA Community Chest.

Here is a couple of tips on becoming an IGA Community Chest beneficiary.

It is best to approach your local IGA store directly. Prepare a pitch and it may include:

An overview of your organisation and/or the individual that you’d like supported;

What support are you looking for – monies, donations of goods, providing team jumpers, holding regular fundraising at the store, group registrations at the store, etc;

How the donation will be used and your timing. Is there anything you can offer in return to IGA?
