As a company with close ties to the Sunshine Coast community, Quik Corp recognizes the importance of Wishlist’s charitable work in the close-knit community and are extremely proud to have partnered with them to support their efforts, by giving back to local Sunshine Coast families.
The Wishlist Foundation exists to harness the support of local businesses—like Quik Corp—to enhance the work of the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service for the benefit of local families that are visiting the hospital, working to keep families together at critical times of need and offer to fund research and vital medical equipment. Here are some of the projects they have funded.
Quik Corp Managing Director, David Wardle, said the company wanted to support something in the local area that they felt made a significant difference to people’s everyday lives.
“After visiting the hospital and seeing what was being done to help, it was an easy choice for us. Our staff can appreciate what it feels like to have a family member or friend ill. It is never a good time. So, to actively contribute to improving facilities and accommodation to help those who are doing it tough, was supported by the whole business as the best way to give back to our community,” Mr Wardle said.
Since 1998, Wishlist with the help of a generous and committed community has raised and directed more than $18 million towards the Coast’s local health system.
Annually the foundation pledges more than $1 million towards:
- Research Projects
- Medical Equipment & Support Projects
- Staff Scholarships & Education Funding
Wishlist’s Lisa Rowe said the partnerships are crucial to the foundation and its fundraising efforts.
“In the case of Quik Corp, our charity is proud to be partnered with a cutting edge, locally-based business leader, achieving incredible things in the world marketplace. As with all our partners, Quik Corp share a passion for the Coast community which is a win for Wishlist and potentially every Sunshine Coast family who visits a local hospital or health service.
“We are incredibly excited to be working with the Quik Corp team,” Ms. Rowe said.
