Foundation

The Azure Capital Foundation was established in 2009 to help deserving community organisations fulfil their charters.

The shareholders of Azure Capital and Azure Consulting donate 2% of the firm’s pre-tax profits to the Foundation each year. Staff also contribute through a Workplace Giving Program. The Foundation allocates funding in the following areas:

  • Organisations using education to break cycles of poverty and disadvantage for underprivileged children
  • Community projects and organisations in which Azure Capital staff have a significant time or personal investment
  • Unspecified projects and organisations that fit with the philosophy outlined above. Preference is given to projects and organisations that are of particular relevance to either Azure Capital staff and / or the community at the time.

Over the past 10 years, the Azure Capital Foundation has provided financial support to a range of organisations including:
