Home About Us GBST In The Community

Our Community Involvement

Dedicated to giving back to the Australian and international community, GBST has actively supported a variety of charitable groups around the world since 2005 via direct donations and company-sponsored fundraising events.

In the past, GBST has provided direct support to Innocents Relief, Room to Read, the Sir David Martin Foundation and Parkinson’s Victoria. We also make an annual donation to a different charity each year in lieu of printing and sending Christmas cards to our clients. In addition to these direct donations, our GBST Community Scheme dollar matches staff donations and internal fundraising efforts. As a result, GBST raised and donated a total of $128,000 in 2015.

To celebrate GBST’s entrance into the U.S. market, the company held a 4th of July raffle in each of its global offices. Over $10,000 was donated to Friends for the Street Children, a program that provides schooling for Street Children in Ho Chi Minh City.

“On behalf of all FFSC staff, volunteers and children, I would like to thank you for your invaluable support for our disadvantaged children. Your concern, along with the generous donation from GBST, will be the motivation for FFSC staff. The donation is guaranteed to be used for re-building a facility named Binh Tho for better conditions for the children.”

Sports & Entertainment

Outrun Cancer: Corporate Treadmill Marathon 2016

In March a keen team of runners represented GBST in the Outrun Cancer Corporate Treadmill Marathon in Sydney. The event was run simultaneously in five locations and raised over $109,000 for Outrun Cancer.  This worthwhile cause funds cancer prevention projects and research programs, as well as raises awareness of how the risk of cancer can be lowered by adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Blackmores Running

GBST sponsored a dedicated team of runners at the 2015 Blackmores Running Festival. Our employees entered the top three categories in the event including the 42km Marathon, the 21km Half Marathon and the 9km Bridge Run.

Bridge to Brisbane 2014

Bridge to Brisbane is one of Queensland’s largest community events.

A group of GBST-sponsored employees ran in this iconic Bridge to Brisbane event in 2014. Money raised through sponsorships benefitted each runner’s charity of choice and 1 second was shaved off final run times for each $1 raised.
