Inaugural Newsletter - Shaw and Partners Foundation Foundation19 Sep 2016

Welcome to the first Shaw and Partners Foundation Newsletter.


It has been nearly 12 months since we formed the Foundation Committee. In that time we have established responsibilities for each individual that sits on the Committee and made some significant donations to a number of charities across our key focus areas: mental health, education and social inclusion.


The highlight of the Foundation’s activities to date was the inaugural Foundation Institutional Trading Day, where we raised $109,398.35 for beyondblue and JDRF. Feedback from our Fund Manager’s clients around this initiative was very positive. We have subsequently put the wheels in motion for next year’s Institutional Trading Day; with a hope that we can raise even more funds for not-for-profits.


The Foundation has been a supporter of a number of matching grants where Shaw and Partners personnel have participated in raising funds for charities. Some of the events included City 2 Surf (Sydney), Connor’s Run (Melbourne), Channel of Bones Surf Ski Paddle (Molokai, Hawaii), Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea (Sydney) and Jeans for Genes Day (National). We also raised funds in excess of $25,000 for Schools Plus, JDRF and beyondblue at our annual Sydney and Melbourne client events.


We are very proud of the Foundation’s impact in the philanthropic space over a short 12 month period. My huge thanks goes to our Advisers and staff who continue to contribute to the Foundation on a monthly basis. Equally, it must be noted that the success of the Foundation has been possible due to the ongoing support of Shaw and Partners, who generously contribute by matching all staff/advisers’ contributions dollar for dollar to the Shaw and Partners Foundation.


Your ongoing support is testament to the impactful work that the Foundation has undertaken to date. As we look to expand our grants functionality over the next 12 months, I ask you to please continue to dig deep. With your help we are working towards instilling change in the fabric of Australian society.

 

Simon Martin, Chairman of the Shaw and Partners Foundation
