As a business that enjoys the support of the community, we have a moral obligation to put resources and effort back into the community. Stanford Brown actively supports the following organisations not only from a financial perspective, but with our time and effort.
The Exodus Foundation exists to meet the immediate material, emotional and spiritual needs of disadvantaged and marginalised people. They seek to empower young Australians through education and literacy and so protect them against the prospect of future unemployment and homelessness. All Stanford Brown staff volunteer twice a year at the Loaves and Fishes Kitchen operated by the Exodus Foundation as part of our community program.
The Cerebral Palsy Alliance supports children and adults with cerebral palsy in NSW and the ACT. The organisation was founded under the name The Spastic Centre on 30 January 1945 by a concerned group of 25 parents of children with cerebral palsy, led by Neil and Audrie McLeod. Many of our staff currently participate in Cerebral Palsy team events including the The Cerebral Palsy Challenge and the Krazy Kosci Klimb which sees 20 young people with cerebral palsy, ably assisted by their respective support teams, attempt to reach the top of Mt Kosciusko.
Artbank is an Australian Government art rental program with knowledge and experience in placing contemporary Australian artwork in large corporations, businesses and homes. Through its acquisitions program, Artbank supports visual artists and craftspeople across Australia. It is home to Australia’s largest and most dynamic collection of contemporary art for rental and has grown to become one of our nation’s most significant cultural assets, with over 9500 works by nearly 3500 established and emerging artists.
Oxfam is a world-wide development organisation that mobilises the power of people against poverty. They provide people with the skills and resources to help them create their own solutions to poverty. Several of our staff compete in the annual Oxfam Trailwalker event, 100km of bush trail within 48 hours. The event coincides with fundraising opportunities and some very sore feet.
