Lexus Owners Gift



As part of the Lexus of Brisbane Group, Lexus of Maroochydore each year supports a charity on behalf of our owners - which has been aptly named the Lexus Owners' Gift.

2023 Lexus Owners' Gift Recipient

AEIOU Foundation is driven to ensure children with autism reach their potential and live their best lives. Supporting children aged 2-6 who have high support needs, AEIOU integrates therapy and early education in a unique, naturalistic environment which is safe, inclusive and engaging. Employing a specialist team of therapists and educators who work closely together, children are supported to achieve their individual goals, while parents receive training and support.

AEIOU creates the foundation to develop essential life skills, a successful transition to school or a child’s next education setting, and ensures children are supported to participate meaningfully in the community.

Thanks to donors and supporters, AEIOU is a special place, where changing the future of a child and their family is possible, because children are understood, accepted and supported to thrive.

How your gift will help

Your Lexus Owners' Gift donation will provide the much needed support of 15 iPads with various communication applications installed, which will help a number of children across 4 centres.

Your gift will change lives.

Over 70% of children who commence with AEIOU, and have a diagnosis of autism, are nonverbal or have limited communication. A child without a functional means of communication cannot communicate with their families and peers, or confidently request their needs and wants.

These devices will empower AEIOU therapists to determine immediate and ongoing support requirements for each child in our care. The development of communication skills for children with autism can be a gradual and often complex process and the development of functional communication skills requires specialist support and intervention. Communication is comprised of several skills and learning how to communicate can take many forms, depending on a child’s ability, learning history and motivation.

Providing each child with a means to communicate with confidence is a high priority for the team around each child. To ensure this is possible, our teams require tools and resources which will enable effective communication strategies to be taught to the children. Thanks to YOU, AEIOU Foundation offers hope and makes a genuine difference in the lives of these children and their families by helping to limit the more disabling aspects of autism.

Our History

Each year, the Lexus of Brisbane Group traditionally sent a small Christmas gift to our owners. 2005 was a year of overwhelming natural and human disasters, most of which dampened our spirits and caused us to question humanity. Instinctively we drew our loved ones close to us in protective embrace. With these events in mind, more and more of our owners suggested that they would prefer the money which was allocated to the gifts to instead be put towards a charitable cause; hence the formation of the Lexus Owners' Gift.

Every year a number of charities/causes apply for the gift and after much consideration, the Scifleet family personally make the selection based on set criteria, whilst keeping our owners at the forefront of the decision making process.

The Lexus Owners' Gift is much more than a one-off donation. The successful charity/cause has the opportunity to heighten their exposure through the Lexus Owners' network and promote their charity at Lexus sponsored functions and in-dealership events.

Sponsorship Criteria

Aligning our business operations with community values is an essential part of our company.

While we would love to support all causes, unfortunately that would only serve to dilute the funds given to each project and we believe that we will be of greater help to support one main cause every year.

Please be advised the 2023 Lexus Owners' Gift has already been committed.
