Community giving

At Metricon we don't just build homes - we build communities.

Our commitment to you and your community

We believe giving and sharing creates a strong foundation on which true community spirit grows. Metricon is committed to building and nurturing strong relationships with organisations in the community that do good things - which is why we support charities and engage in sponsorships. Our support includes collaborations with two principal national charities, assisting local charities in regional communities, and sponsoring sporting clubs.

Principal Charity Partnerships

Metricon has principal charity partnerships with both Canteen and Habitat for Humanity Australia. Metricon will provide financial and in-kind support for a three-year term as part of our strong commitment to community giving.

Canteen

Every year, another 23,000 young people are affected by cancer. That’s 63 young people every day.

Canteen makes sure young Australians don’t have to face a cancer diagnosis alone. Through counselling, peer support programs and funding clinical research trials, Canteen is celebrated as a world leader in its field. In addition to supporting cancer patients, Canteen also offers support to siblings, children and parents of cancer sufferers.

At Metricon, many of our employees, suppliers and customers have been touched by cancer in their lives. This connection was the genesis of our partnership with this special organisation. We care about the health of young Australians and their families, which is why we are committed to helping Canteen amplify their impact in the community

Metricon x Canteen VIC Charity Bike Ride

In May 2019, twelve Metricon cyclists completed a 450km, four-day bike ride to support young Australians living with cancer. Cycling from Melbourne to Ballarat, Ballarat to Lorne, Lorne to Rye and finally from Rye to the Metricon head office in Melbourne, the Metricon team pushed their physical limits to raise money and awareness for Canteen Australia. The vital funds raised will assist young people coping with cancer in their family, rebuild their foundations and connect with others in the same boat.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity believes that a stable, secure home creates the foundation for change; that a safe home gives people the opportunity to be healthier, happier and more secure, and for children to be better nourished and educated.

At Metricon, we believe everyone should have a place to call home, which is why this partnership is so special to us and our people. We are committed to helping Habitat for Humanity build, renovate and restore homes for disadvantaged Australians around the country. Because building a decent home provides much more than bricks and mortar – it builds a community and provides real hope for the future.

“Metricon is in a unique position to share some of its good fortune with Australian families. We’re proud of the contribution we can make to supporting people experiencing adversity. We actively encourage our team to pursue volunteering opportunities through paid volunteering days - not only with our principal partners but with the wide range of causes that mean something to them personally.” Metricon CEO - Mario Biasin

Key Sporting Sponsorships

Sport, in particular football, transcends so many cultures and communities. It positively impacts people at a grassroots level, contributing to better health outcomes and a feeling of community connection. Metricon’s football alliances across Australia include a strong and successful relationship with the Gold Coast SUNS that has existed since 2011, and partnerships with the Melbourne Victory Football Club and South Sydney Rabbitohs, both formed in 2018.

Gold Coast SUNS at Metricon Stadium

Metricon has been a Gold Coast SUNS corporate partner since the SUNS’ inaugural 2011 season, and the alliance notably includes naming rights of the Club’s home ground, Metricon Stadium.

AFL is a popular code around the country and Metricon is proud to be instrumental in growing the code’s supporter base on the Gold Coast where we have a strong business and customer presence.

Metricon has purpose built the Metricon Home Hub at the stadium for on-ground activations and frequently gets involved in other exciting game day initiatives.

Melbourne Victory Football Club

Metricon has been a Principal Partner of Melbourne Victory Football Club’s Principal Partner since 2018.

The partnership aligns Metricon’s sponsorship commitments with the recreational activities its customers passionately support.

As Australia’s fastest-growing football code, Association Football engages 1,983,000 participants and 7,700,000 fans. The Melbourne Victory Football Club partnership is a natural fit for Metricon and many of its customers who love the code.

South Sydney Rabbitohs

Recognising that Rugby League is also widely supported by its customers, Metricon has a sponsorship agreement in place with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

This alliance includes naming rights of the Club’s stadium, the Metricon High Performance Centre.

Like Metricon, the South Sydney Rabbitohs is a club with a proud heritage, a strong and inclusive culture, and a real desire to make a difference to the community.
