We call it the IGA Community Chest because it’s where our heart is. Over the past 7 years, IGA has raised over $80m nationally through IGA Community Chest and associated programs. We’ve donated this money to over 7,000 local community groups, not-for-profit organisations and other worthwhile causes.
Money for IGA Community Chest is raised through a variety of ways and it is something we do 52 weeks a year. When you purchase a product with the IGA Community Chest logo printed on the label, a percentage is automatically credited to that store’s IGA Community Chest fund, some exclusions apply. During promotion weeks, all products in the catalogue bearing the special IGA Community Chest logo contribute to the Chest. Throughout the year, extra fundraising activities are conducted by stores and regions.
