Caring about communities & facilitating change

Our commitment to corporate social responsibility

Sanifect owners and founders, Tom Vasilevski and Nicholas Markov, believe business should be about more than commerce – it’s an opportunity to share the rewards of success and make a difference in the communities and country in which we work. Tom and Nick’s commitment to giving back commenced pretty much from the get-go, passionately supporting causes they care about.

Sanifect has now committed to furthering its commitment with its partnership with the Hawthorn Football Club in the re-naming the administration and training center to Bunjil Bagora.

Partnership in renaming Bunjil Bagora

Gifted by Senior Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Joy Murphy, Bunjil Bagora comes from the Wurundjeri Woiwurrung language the traditional owners of the land on which (formerly) Waverly Park sits.

Bunjil is a symbolic portrayal of the ancestral creator spirit and is regarded as majestic, swift and fierce.

Bagora can be translated as a cultural place, a reminder of a rich and surviving land of thousands of years.

In a joint statement, Tom and Nick say;

“The name is a significant gift; we feel privileged of the honour and can’t thank Senior Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Joy Murphy-Wandin, and the traditional owners enough for its manifestation.

We are proud to be able to do our bit, and proud we can do it in partnership with the Hawthorn Football Club. We love we’re involved in something bigger than ourselves. It propels us to reach higher and go further than we normally would, and we want to see us continue to grow in this way doing more great things from the boardrooms to the ground. We’re certain there’ll be great things ahead as Sanifect and the Hawthorn Football Club continue to work together on even more inspiring causes.

We also acknowledge that all the things we’ve done so far in supporting Indigenous Australian causes as only a small token. We acknowledge the injustice and inequality between indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.  So much more needs to be done, because the disparity indigenous people face daily requires so much more help.

We’d like to throw down a challenge to other companies like ours who are not huge multi-nationals with multi-billion budgets (but them too!), but medium sized, growing Australian companies that care about their communities to commit to making change happen.”
