Russell Investments' Community Involvement
Helping to improve the lives of those around us
Our commitment to community is one of our core values. That's why we donate millions of dollars each year to help improve the quality of life for people in our cities and neighbourhoods in the areas of:
- Health and human services
- Civic improvement
- Arts and culture
But we're not just making a difference as a company. Our employees throughout the world contribute their time, talent and dollars to thousands of worthy causes. We are constantly inspired by their passion and energy.
This year we are honoured and proud through our focussed giving program to be supporting Redkite.
Redkite is the Australian cancer charity providing essential support to children and young people (0-24 years) with cancer, and their families and support networks.

Russell Investments remains committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate and supporting our associates in their efforts to do so.

As always, Russell Investments is steadfast in its genuine focus on people and improving the quality of life in communities where associates live and where we do business.
