Morgans runs the Morgans Foundation. The Foundation pools funds from Morgans, its regional offices, clients and staff, to make meaningful contributions to selected charities.
Since it was established in 2005, the Foundation has donated approximately $5.4 million to over 150 charities around Australia. In 2011, the Foundation was named QCF Corporate Philanthropist of the Year.
We also support
Inner City Legal Centre Foundation (ICLC Foundation)
The ICLC Foundation is a charitable trust established in 2012 to support the Inner City Legal Centre (ICLC). The purpose of the foundation is to fund the work of the ICLC, in particular additional projects connected with the provision of legal services and access to justice, with a particular focus on LGBTI support, where the ICLC does not have the resources to pursue those projects itself.
Kylie Macdonald from Morgans Chatswood will be participating in the ICLC Tassie Trek 2017 to raise much-needed funds for the Foundation. You can show your support for Kylie here.
Australian Stockbrokers Foundation
Morgans Chatswood is proud to be a part of the not-for-profit Australia Stockbrokers Foundation. Investment manager Danny Dreyfus is the Founding Director. Kylie Macdonald recently retired as a Director of the foundation to focus her attention on Kids in Philanthropy (see below).
Since its inception the Australian Stockbrokers Foundation has raised over $7 million dollars from the stockbroking community, to distribute to the homeless, the mistreated, the intellectually challenged, the physically handicapped, the sick and the poor, who, often through no fault of their own, struggle to achieve the things we take for granted. There is an emphasis towards assisting childrens' causes, and especially where we can make a difference.
The Australian Stockbrokers Foundation support all of the following charities:
Annual Stockbroker Awards Charity Dinner
The Annual Stockbrokers Awards Charity dinner is held towards the end of the financial year, where over five undred people from stockbroking houses and investment banks open their hearts (and their wallets) for those less fortunate than themselves, and to acknowledge the achievements of the past year.
Kids In Philanthropy
Kids In Philanthropy (KIP) is a philanthropic sub‐fund of the Sydney Community Foundation. It is a not‐for‐profit Fund that focuses on building social awareness, social conscience and a practice of giving, in kids for kids.
Kids In Philanthropy aims to engage children between the ages of 5 and 18 years, and their families, in an annual program of active philanthropy where activity is focused on raising awareness of areas of need in their own city, and providing opportunities for these young people to take a leadership role in addressing these areas of need.
KIP is also for parents, guardians, carers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters or other significant people, who seek to instil in their younger family members the values of giving, of reciprocity, of active compassion.
Kids have significant representation, an active voice and a strong leadership role on the Advisory Board of KIP and are instrumental in determining where funding and other assistance is directed. Kylie Macdonald is National Chief Executive, appointed in 2013.
We want to bring philanthropy back into the home, make it the heart of dinner time conversation and most of all we want to spread the benefits of giving - not only among the families involved but through the communities that benefit.
