Yes. The fee is dependent on the number of participants and is structured to cover the cost of a program facilitator and course materials. As ShareTree is a registered charity, the fee is considered a service and is a fully tax-deductible as an organisational expense.
In addition to our multi-day Character and Culture Development Program, we also offer ongoing character mentoring for schools, businesses and community groups, from one-on-one sessions to multi-group sessions.
We also offer the ShareTree mobile phone app which can be used by individuals, community groups and organisations for the purposes of character development and volunteering time, skills and resources.
The ShareTree charity model is unique. It has been designed in a way that invests in creating social businesses that are half for-profit and income capped; and half owned by a charity. Each business that ShareTree has seed-funded, created or acquired is a 50% charity-owned entity because ShareTree is invested in the business venture.
ShareTree has seed-funded a range of businesses in different industries. These businesses are required to meet strict income fairness standards, which regulate a maximum of 30:1 income distribution ratio cap. This means that no person within the entity will ever earn more than 30 times the lowest income earner. Unlike other entities, income is wholly declared and includes wages, profit shares, dividends, and fringe benefits.
