Welcoming SC Johnson to the waka

SC Johnson are a 5th generation, family company who strongly believes in giving back to the communities in which they operate. They have a long-standing commitment to philanthropy, which began in 1937, when the company began giving 5 percent of all pretax profits to charities each year. 

When looking for a suitable charitable partner in New Zealand, SC Johnson wanted to work with an organisation which aligned with their approach of fostering access to education. Their global approach is to support programmes that are inclusive and of a high standard delivering education through literacy initiatives, early childhood intervention, or programs that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

I Have a Dream and our long-term approach to supporting youth with the resources they need to achieve academic and life success, meant that this partnership was a great fit.

“Reading opens the world to children and lays the foundation for future educational success” – Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson.

SC Johnson are supporting 35 Dreamers in our Year 3 cohort who are at the start of their education journey and one which will be able to be nurtured and expanded upon thanks to the generous support of this new donor.

Welcome to the waka SC Johnson!
