Shaw and Partners donates $819,100 to charity during Foundation Week Foundation28 Sep 2020

Last week Shaw and Partners proudly celebrated 5 years of our charitable Shaw and Partners Foundation after having raised and donated $3 million to over 70 Australian charities over the past 5 years.

 

To celebrate this milestone the Shaw and Partners Foundation committed to donate a minimum of $500,000 to Australian micro charities across the country.

 

What started at the outset as a fundraising target of $500,000, thanks to the generosity of our institutional clients for their support on the Foundation Institutional Day, our Shaw and Partners Foundation Committee and the Shaw and Partners Board, today, we are thrilled to announce that the Shaw and Partners Foundation has committed $819,100 to Australian micro charities.

 

All six Shaw and Partners offices; Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra, were given $75,000 to be donated to charities of their choice, and an additional $25,000 to the Sydney office due to the majority of Shaw and Partners employees being based in Sydney. In addition to this, $150,000 was donated to Gus Worland’s Gotcha4Life on Tuesday morning.

 

After setting a fundraising target of $250,000, the Shaw and Partners Institutional Team raised an enormous $377,000 from the activity of its annual Foundation Institutional Day. Shaw and Partners has committed half of the raised funds, $188,500, to the Australian Fund Managers Foundation, which supports Odyssey House, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Reach, Life Education, The Katrina Dawson Foundation, Children’s Cancer Institute and Go Foundation, and the remaining $188,500 of the Foundation Institutional Day brokerage into the pool of funds to be donated around the country.

 

Announced on Friday morning after a week of staff voting, and an additional $5,600 thrown into the mix during the week of festivities, the Shaw and Partners Foundation has committed $480,600 across the following charities:

 

  • Mito Foundation
  • Mater Little Miracles
  • Karinya House
  • Marymead
  • Connors Run
  • MND Victoria
  • The Starlight Children’s Foundation
  • Telethon Kids Institute
  • Lou’s Place
  • Bear Cottage
  • The Cardoner Project
  • The Hospital Research Foundation - The Neuroendocrine Unit
  • Childhood Cancer Association

  • Sacred Heart Mission
  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
  • MS Queensland
  • Concord Hospital Gastroenterology Contribution Fund
  • Black Dog Institute
  • The Shepherd Centre
  • Cystic Fibrosis WA
  • The Heart Foundation WA

 

Shaw and Partners remains committed to using the privilege in our industry to effect tangible change in the fabric of Australian society by giving back to the communities we live and work in.

 

In line with this, the Shaw and Partners Foundation announces today its 10-year commitment: by the 10-year anniversary of the Shaw and Partners Foundation in 2025, the Shaw and Partners Foundation pledges to raise and donate $10 million to Australian charities.
