Yumbah families live and work in the communities where they farm, their children go to local schools and play sport for local teams. Having an ongoing contribution to the communities is very important to Yumbah. Surf Life Saving clubs, fundraising food events and local football, cricket and RSL clubs are all important to the local communities where Yumbah people live and work. Yumbah understands the importance of local education and contributes not just financially, but through work experience opportunities and regular school group tours through its farms. Most importantly, Yumbah also relies on a healthy sustainable environment. To help ensure its preservation, Yumbah sponsors the Blue Whale Study and its connection to the Bonney Upwelling and Yaygirr Language Centre from where Yumbah derives its name.
Our Yumbah sites sponsor a wide variety of clubs and events as well as providing tours to educational facilities and hosting school-based trainees. The goal of Yumbah sponsorship is to connect in a positive and mutually beneficial manner with the communities in which our businesses are located. Below are some of the recipients of our sponsorship:
