community giving

At API we like to give! Apart from giving the right insurance advice at the right price we also like to give something back to communities in need. That why we set up the API Foundation. It’s our way to assist worthy causes because we care.

As the principals of API Insurance Services, Rob Skipper and Andrew Cook each pledged to donate a portion of the business’ yearly profits to the API Foundation. The API Foundation is administered by an independent body, the Community Foundation of South Australia – in turn administered by the Public Trustee – which invests the funds and allocates both capital and income to worthwhile causes (ie.organisations with tax deductible gift receipt status) as directed by the API Foundation.

To date the API Foundation has assisted Volunteering SA & NT Inc.; Legacy Club of Adelaide Inc.; SAVE Foundation of Australia (Inc.);
and Plan. API staff also regularly contribute by way of casual days, office luncheons and participating in other events.
