We take our corporate social responsibility seriously and are committed to giving back to the community that has nurtured and helped us grow. As a company, we donate to our chosen charities, but we also encourage our staff to get involved in causes close to their hearts. Here’s what some of them have been up to recently:
Between July 2019 and June 2020, Nautitech® donated $10,000 to the following charities nominated by staff:
♦ Beyond Blue ♦ Kids With Cancer
♦ Breakthrough Houses ♦ National Breast Cancer Foundation
♦ Cancer Council ♦ Parramatta Community Care
♦ Caritas Australia ♦ Rural Fire Service
♦ Children’s Medical Research Institute ♦ Scouts Association
♦ Fred Hollows ♦ Transplant Australia
♦ Hay Runners ♦ Westmead Children’s Hospital
In support of Jersey Day, Nautitech staff wore their favourite sporting jerseys on August 31, 2018 to encourage people to start a conversation about organ donation.
In 2015, a local Hills family lost their 13 year-old son Nathan Gremmo after he was critically injured in a road accident. They bravely donated his organs and saved 6 other lives. The Jersey Day campaign was inspired to raise awareness about organ donation and get people talking.
So take the time to talk to friends, family, even your colleagues and:
Discover – the facts about organ and tissue donation
Decide – to become a donor and register online
Discuss – your decision with those close to you so they know where you stand

On December 3rd, our new General Manager, Mac Powolny, participated in the Bikers for Kids Newcastle Toy Run, the oldest annual event of its kind in Australia.
The toy run is focused on providing toys and support for families in the Hunter who might otherwise go without during Christmas. The donations help to save parents’ dignity and give a child something special under the tree
In QLD, we support the Mackay Angels Softball Team. Our recent contribution of $1,500 was warmly received and assisted in ‘…purchasing and maintaining much needed equipment and supplies.’
The Angels had great success in 2017 with many of their teams taking out the win in most divisions and grades.
In May of this year, one of our NSW staff walked at the Mother’s Day Classic Breast Cancer Walk in Sydney with the Australian Girls Choir (AGC) team, an organisation that empowers girls and supports a cause that has touched many of us.
