At Think Pink we value the partnerships formed with organisations and individuals who support our mission through financial support, pro bono services, volunteering and donated goods.
We work together to establish sustainable relationships that benefit our partners and Think Pink clients. Through these partnerships we can provide a better journey through breast cancer for patients and their families.
We invite you to contact us to discuss becoming a partner today.
We are proud of the partnerships that have supported us for many years. Our work would not be possible without their support:
Freemasons Victoria has, as one of their leading community programs for women’s causes, supported our Foundation since 2010 by sponsoring a fully qualified and highly experienced Breast Care Nurse at The Living Centre for the last six years donating in excess of $500,000.
In addition, each year since 2013, Freemasons Victoria has also generously provided additional support of at least $30,000 raised during their October fundraising activities in Breast Cancer Awareness Month. These funds facilitate The Living Centre’s ongoing programs including our wig salon and the very successful and popular “Go Girls” getting back into the workforce program.
The Think Pink Foundation gratefully acknowledges and thanks Freemasons Victoria for their extraordinary generosity and benevolence which has enabled us to operate The Living Centre with the best health care professionals and has facilitated our most vital support programs.
Freemasons Victoria – An organisation of good men, supporting each other, their families and the Community – Their principles make a difference!
In 2015, Freemasons Victoria established a Charitable Foundation to perform the previous functions of the Freemasons Victoria Board of Benevolence. The Foundation donates over $2 Million per year to various registered charities in Victoria.
Freemasons Foundation Victoria Limited has in 2015 and 2016 sponsored our fully qualified and highly experienced Breast Care Nurse at The Living Centre at a cost of $90,000 per annum.

The Mirvac Group initially leased The Living Centre premises to Think Pink at a substantially reduced and very affordable rental and through their contractors, provided the entire building fit-out free of charge. These set-up costs were valued at over $200,000.
In addition, as part of their sponsorship, Mirvac also provided a two-bedroom apartment at no additional cost to allow us to provide emergency accommodation for rural-based, VPTAS qualified patients and their carer travelling to Melbourne to undergo treatment.
Mirvac continues to support the Living Centre through workplace giving, fundraising with the “Think Pink It’s Friday” program, and most importantly by supporting Think Pink’s fundraising events by providing staff volunteers and logistical support.
Karen Jemison is one of Australia’s most talented film and theatre producers. Through her company, Manilla Street Productions, she has previously staged wonderful musical productions such as “Sondheim on Sondheim”, “Where Do I Begin? The Voice of Shirley Bassey” and “Pacific Overtures”.
This year, in order to raise awareness of and funds for The Living Centre, Karen and Manilla Street Productions are staging a one-off charity performance of “NINE The Musical” which is being held to coincide with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Melbourne Cup Eve (31 st October, 2016) at The Melbourne Recital Centre. The entire cast, 30-piece orchestra, choir and dancers are all donating their time and talent Pro-bono with all proceeds going to The Living Centre.
Karen and some of the members of the cast have personally visited the Living Centre and are committed to the Think Pink Cause of Enabling a better journey through breast cancer.
William A. McNeil & Co – Onkaparinga, the Platinum Sponsor of our Think Pink Ball for nine years, has also supplied all the beds, mattresses, linen and warmth products for the Living Centre Emergency Accommodation Apartment.
We offer our Foundation’s most sincere gratitude to Onkaparinga and in particular to its current Managing Director, David McNeil for continuing their longstanding and loyal support.
Onkaparinga which was previously owned by Sleepmaster Australia was our first Major Partner and has been continuously supporting The Think Pink Cause since 2005.
Tony Hale and his amazing team at Print Supply Management have been supporting Think Pink with pro-bono print services for over five years saving Think Pink thousands of dollars each year in printing costs.
No job has been too large or small and PSM has printed all of Think Pink’s collateral free of charge including corporate and Living Centre brochures, promotional posters of all sizes, collection can stickers and business cards.
Print Supply Management’s dedicated efforts have helped Think Pink maintain its high standard of presentation in all its printed collateral.
Kmart Australia Limited was instrumental in helping The Think Pink Foundation to establish The Living Centre.
In 2010, Kmart kindly agreed to pay the rental on our premises for the first five years of our tenancy – a commitment of $300,000.
We are so grateful to Kmart and in particular to Managing Director, Guy Russo for their incredible assistance and support which brought the project to fruition and financed the rent for The Living Centre for the last five years.
Kmart also provided almost $20,000 in items for the fit-out of the Living Centre and its apartment.
Pink Hygiene Services (now referred to as Rentokil Initial) is also a great supporter of The Think Pink Foundation and in 2011, provided the pink VW Beetle vehicle for our Victorian Living Centre at no cost. This allows our Foundation to provide transport for patients to and from the Living Centre using a Think Pink volunteer driver.
It is envisaged this program will be extended to all our future Living Centres which will open progressively in every capital city.
