The Morgans Foundation was established in 2005 with the goal of pooling funds from Morgans, its regional offices, clients and staff to make more meaningful contributions to selected charities.
Our business has a staff and branch Giving Initiative whereby it will match staff donations up to an agreed amount for support of local charities.
Since the Morgans Foundation was established, it has donated approximately $5.4 million to over 150 charities around Australia. In 2011, the Foundation was named QCF Corporate Philanthropist of the Year.
In response to the disastrous weather-related events in Australia and the earthquake in New Zealand in 2011, the Foundation made payments in support of regional relief agencies, local support groups, state government relief appeals and local governments in Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and New Zealand of more than $1.24 million in total.
The charities supported by the Morgans Foundation to date reflect the wide ranging community support and local interests of our Australia-wide network of offices, staff and clients.
Following interest, involvement and commitment from our staff, major beneficiaries are provided with a best endeavours commitment for multiple year support to projects, which may "make a difference" to their operations, allowing them to undertake or maintain new programs.
Our major beneficiaries are:
We also have a further 50 beneficiaries that are designated gift recipients.
