We believe it’s important to contribute to the improvement of the communities we work and live in. That’s why in 2009 we established the Azure Capital Foundation – to give back to deserving community organisations and help them to fulfil their charters.
The shareholders of Azure Capital make an annual donation of 2% of the firm’s pre-tax profit to the foundation. Our staff also contribute through a Workplace Giving Program. The Foundation allocates funding in the following areas:
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.
As well as financial assistance, our staff give their time to projects supported by the Foundation. Azure partners and staff currently sit on the Boards and Committees of the following not-for-profit organisations:
