ForPurposeCo. exists to expand OzHarvest's mission.
Today, OzHarvest needs significant revenue to rescue food and reduce food waste through education, training, lobbying and advocacy as well as support its engagement and innovation pillars and overall vision to Nourish Our Country.
More capital is required to grow and focus on new ways to reduce food waste. The current funding models are not sufficient to maintain what has been built and invest in the future needs.
Investment in ForPurposeCo. has double impact. The investment will help to bring innovative products and services to market and increase the SROI (Social Return on Investment) of OzHarvest.
Double your return on investment.
Your investment in ForPurposeCo. will not only provide financial return but also social return — doubling the impact of your investment. OzHarvest runs an efficient, agile and lean operation that delivers real impact for the environment and people in need.
