Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility at FB Rice

At FB Rice, we take our corporate citizenship seriously, and our commitment to the communities in which we work is central to the way we engage with clients, staff and suppliers. Most of our pro-bono and philanthropic programs are started by our people, who have great passion and are keen to make a contribution to the communities in which we live and work.

Pro bono IP services play an important role in our portfolio of work, with the Northcott Institute, Cystic Fibrosis Australia, the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines, and the Children’s Hospital Westmead as some of our longstanding pro bono clients.

FB Rice actively engages with and supports many humanitarian and charitable causes through monthly charity fundraisers and participation in events such as Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Footy Colours Day and Jeans for Genes Day. The SCIC Cochlear Implant Program at the Royal Institute for Deaf & Blind Children, The Orangutan Project and So They Can are just some of the causes we support, often with matched donations from the partnership. We also regularly have teams volunteering their time for events including Oxfam Trailwalker, and support employees in these efforts through paid volunteer time.

If you would like to be considered as a pro bono client or for one of our charitable campaigns please contact Rebecca Morisset.
