At Morgan Wealth, we have a history of giving back to the community by supporting social and cultural organisations which share our core values of excellence, integrity and care for others. We do so by providing corporate sponsorships and donations to organisations which we believe enhance the lives of others in the broader community.
The organisations we support include:
Yarra Riverkeepers Association
The Yarra Riverkeeper Association speaks for the Yarra, Melbourne’s own beautiful, resilient, iconic River. The Association is the credible and authoritative voice for the River. It is an independent community of citizen-advocates that works solely in the interest of the river. The spokesperson of the Association is the Yarra Riverkeeper, and the Riverkeeper boat is permanently moored in the Yarra and patrols the River. As the population of Melbourne balloons and demands for open spaces grow, our River is coming under increasing pressure.
“We advocate for the River: for green spaces, for water quality, for biodiversity, for the birds, animals, insects and reptiles along the River, for good planning decisions, for the tributaries, for the parklands, for appropriate recreation; and for an understanding of our river and its role in the life of the city of Melbourne. We lobby governments and we educate the community. We tell the story of the River.”
– Andrew Kelly, Yarra Riverkeeper.
The Melbournaires Harmony Chorus
The Chorus provides men of all ages with the opportunity to participate in a range of small and large choruses which regularly provide performances to a wide range of community organisations through its Outreach Program. Morgan Wealth has provided financial support to the Chorus for a considerable number of years as corporate sponsors.
StreetSmart Australia supports people who are homeless or at risk by raising funds and awareness through innovative projects. They partner with other small organisations in the communities where funds are raised to bring change to these people’s lives. StreetSmart operates throughout Australia and has funded 1,646 projects, such as Orange Sky Laundry, the world’s first free mobile laundry service for the homeless, and has supported 566 organisations, including CareVan to take action against hunger.
At Morgan Wealth we believe in assisting organisations that enhance basic human rights and are proud to be financial supporters.
Zahra Foundation Australia
According to Australia’s Human Rights Commission, Australia has a disturbingly high rate of violence against women, including family and domestic violence, sexual assault and harassment. The Zahra Foundation Australia, established recently in 2015 and with its headquarter in Adelaide, is an organisation which supports women and their children who suffer from abuses with a special focus on their economic well-being, employment and education opportunities in the long-term. At Morgan Wealth we strongly believe in gender equality and in women’s capabilities to function equally alongside men within the business world and, therefore, encourage this movement.
Australian African Foundation for Retention and Opportunity
The AAFRO Foundation is an organisation in Melbourne, run by, and for the benefit of, people of African descent to build relationships between them and the wider Australian community. The foundation engages in a number of projects with educational programs, skills workshops, and local associations to encourage positive adaptation and self-development of young people facing difficulties. Morgan Wealth has established an ongoing funding relationship with AAFRO and is a firm supporter of providing educational pathways or transitions to work, for young people in need.
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
We provide financial support through our founder, Wayne Morgan and his partner Penny, as patrons of the Orchestra which is one of Melbourne’s iconic cultural institutions and provides world-class performances of classical and contemporary music throughout Australia and overseas. The orchestra through its Education and Community Engagement Program also seeks to make orchestral music available to individuals of all ages to develop a deep and lasting connection between its musicians and the broader community.
