APCO Foundation will, as a group (involving Support Office team members, Retail Partners and their employees) volunteer & endeavour to raise money to enable changes in our community in the areas of Health, Poverty, Education, Disaster Relief and Health Crises.
APCO is a locally owned independent fuel and retail food and grocery business. The Anderson family created the APCO Foundation to give back the support that has always been given to APCO by its customers. Our retail partners live and work in your communities and together with the support office and corporate partners, strongly support the work our Foundation does.
The APCO Foundation donates, assists and supports people in need in communities Victoria wide. The Foundation has a Board made up of members of the APCO community. The Foundation members are all volunteers and work hard to raise money to help members and groups in our community that need support. Portions of sales of some products in APCO stores are also donated straight to the Foundation and many of our valued suppliers sponsor products where contributions of sales of those products are also donated.
