Shaw and Partners Foundation Newsletter, 2nd Edition Foundation15 Feb 2018

Shaw and Partners Management and staff view our commitment to strengthening communities through financial support, volunteering and skills sharing as part of our responsibility to our clients and the broader community within which we operate.


The Shaw and Partners Foundation continues to develop and grow its impact in the not-for-profit sector. Since its inception in late 2015, we have donated over $650,000 to a range of charities which perpetuate tangible change in the areas of mental health, education and social inclusion.


This year the Foundation and our staff contributed close to $370,000 in donations, raising funds for 25 Australian-based charitable operations, as well as recording many hours of voluntary community service. These charities included (but are not limited to); Huntington’s NSW, JDRF, Jeans for Genes, Schools Plus, Lifehouse, Youth InSearch, Fight MND, Sir David Martin Foundation, MS, Starlight Children’s Foundation, Cancer Council and Cure Brain Cancer.


The highlight of the Foundation’s activities was the second Shaw and Partners Foundation Institutional Day, through which we raised over $240,000 (more than double the amount of the previous year). These funds were donated to charities supported by The Australian Stockbrokers Foundation and the Australian Fund Manager Foundation; including Bear Cottage, Odyssey House, the Sydney Children’s Hospital and the Matthew Talbot Hostel.
Over the course of FY18, our focus will remain on supporting the worthy charities that attract minimal, if any assistance from the government and without our support are not able to generate significant fundraising income of their own. The Shaw and Partners Foundation will continue to adopt a long term view to corporate philanthropy by broadening the horizons of those less fortunate in our community.


On behalf of the Committee, I want to extend my thanks to Simon Martin for his service to the Foundation as the inaugural Chairman. Simon has laid some very solid foundations upon which we will continue to evolve and grow.
Finally, I would like to thank all Shaw staff and Executives, who give so generously each month to our Foundation. Without this generosity it would not be possible to make such a positive contribution to people’s lives.

 

Cam Duncan, Chairman of Shaw and Partners Foundation
