In 2012 and 2013, through Club Clipsal membership, we supported the great work of the E.J. Whitten Foundation, to create awareness of prostate cancer and raise funds for research into the disease.
In 2007, Clipsal managed to raise substantial donations through organising various Luli Week fundraising activities. Luli Week is an annual charity fundraiser held in June, with an aim to raise funds for underprivileged children.

State Community Support
Aside from national support, each state holds various events throughout the year, which raises money for a wide range of charity groups, disaster relief and sporting teams.
