Charitable organisations rely on the support of the business community and FIA Sports Management are committed to contributing to the development of the not for profit sector. One Life Foundation™ and One Life Sports Foundation™ are funded by IGI Worldwide and FIA Sports Management group members and our generous supporters.
We are pleased to be able to give back to the community by providing funding for the One Life Foundation™ and support to our partners Life Education Australia, Bali Children Foundation, WhiteLion, and the Lord Mayors Charitable Fund to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children and youth across Australia.
One Life Foundation™
One Life Foundation™ is a not for profit organisation that provides support for disadvantaged children and youth in Australia who have a passion to participate in or pursue sporting endeavours and was founded by IGI Worldwide; FIA Sports Management’s parent company.
The social challenges experienced by young people caused by poverty, homelessness, disability, family breakdown, drugs, alcohol and exclusion affect the lives of many people in our community.
As a non-for-profit organisation our Foundation is about providing opportunity to address some of these challenges by creating programs of sporting activities that result in positive experiences for young people, that due to their circumstances they may not have been able to experience.
Some of our programs include The Onelife Empowerment Program conducted with Whitelion for the Victorian Juvenile Justice Department. This program supports youth in the Juvenile Justice system with life skills to use once they return to society.
Operating with the support of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation our intention is to leave a mark on the present and the future. Our business takes a leadership role by investing in the community; making it stronger, healthier and importantly changing the lives of young people.
Life Education Australia™
Since 2009, FIA Sports Management has been an active supporter of Life Education Australia, the largest non-government provider of health education to children and young people in the country. Facilitated by specialist educators who use innovative and interactive teaching strategies, Life Education develops young people’s life skills, knowledge and confidence.
Life Education Australia’s mission is to empower children to make safe and healthy decisions, a vision which matches well with FIA Sports Managenent’s values to to leave a positive footprint on the world and build for future generations.
Bali Children Foundation™
The Indonesian island province of Bali is idyllic in every sense. However, Bali’s remote rural communities have been heavily impacted by both man-made and natural disasters and many families are caught in the poverty trap with little or no income. There is minimal government assistance and all education must be paid for.
The drop-out rate in rural primary schools is very high. Children frequently have no option other than a lifetime of working on the land.
The vision of the Bali Children Foundation, is to provide an educational pathway for disadvantaged Balinese children – a journey leading to growth and long term sustainability.
FIA Sports Management is proud supporter of the Bali Children Foundation.
For ten years FIA Sports Management (and IGI Worldwide) has supported a a partnership with Whitelion, a not-for-profit organisation supporting young people who are involved with, or at risk of involvement, with the Youth Justice System or Out of Home or Leaving Care services.
Whitelion help prevent disadvantaged young people from becoming further isolated from the community by providing them with access to employment opportunities and a mentoring service.
FIA Sports Management chose to align with Whitelion as we believe we share similar values with the organisation such as being committed, real, collaborative, compassionate, courageous, innovative and professional and because we believe that through our association we can truly make a difference to the lives of young Australians.
Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund™
FIA Sports Management has been a member of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund since 2009.
Established in 1923, the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation is a leading philanthropic organisation in Australia.
The Foundation applies a combination of grants, research, community education, fundraising and partnerships with donors and other funders to increase life opportunities and promote social inclusion.
