Commit your business today

Pledge Now
Many of our towns in Regional NSW have been hit hard by bushfire and drought. Small business owners and their staff form the backbone of these communities, and they have lost the vital holiday trade that keeps them going for the rest of the year. Now, more than ever, we must back those who have been impacted by natural disaster.

Pledge Now

The NSW Business Chamber is calling on city-based businesses, not for profits, government agencies and sporting clubs to publicly commit to taking one meeting that would normally be held in the city to an affected regional area.
Whether it’s a board meeting, planning session or a staff conference, by visiting during the quieter period from now through to November, you’ll provide a much-needed cash boost, keep staff employed and give local businesses the confidence they need to stay open and hold on until things get back to normal.

No matter how big or small, your business #BackingTheBush will make a significant impact to those in need.
