In this holiday season when the focus is on togetherness and community, we would like to highlight the many charitable activities that Clairfield partners are proud to support.
Clairfield International is a proud sponsor of Ride4Vee, an initiative to raise money for breast cancer research at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Australia in memory of Veronica “Vee” Best, the companion of our colleague David Hassum in Brisbane. David Hassum cycled an 1,800 km stretch of the famous Great Divide Mountain Bike Route through the Rocky Mountains from Banff, Alberta to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and all funds raised have gone directly to the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, which performs pioneering research into the detection and treatment of triple negative breast cancer.
The Johanniter in Germany is a leading non-profit care organization that runs hospitals, nursing homes, care for the elderly, youth mentoring, activities for the disabled, a facility for traumatized army veterans – unique in Germany – as well as nationwide ambulance services and international humanitarian assistance.
Doctors Without Borders provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare.
Rotary International brings together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian service. Rotary concentrates on six areas: promoting peace, improving health through disease prevention and treatment, improving the health of mothers and children, water and sanitation, education, and economic development. The most notable current project, PolioPlus, contributes to the global eradication of polio.
The Bürgerstiftung Stuttgart foundation works on integrating people into the community, from newcomers to the city and immigrants, to the elderly, and at-risk youth.
Tmura is a foundation designed to increase the high-tech community’s involvement in nonprofit activity in Israel, with a focus on education and other youth-related initiatives. The foundation receives donations of equity from Israeli high-tech companies and, upon a liquidity event, allocates the proceeds to charities in Israel. Over 550 high-tech companies have already completed the process of allocating equity to Tmura, and Tmura has also had exits from many companies.
Sabona is a Norwegian grassroots aid organization that supports education, health, and employment in Zimbabwe.
CAF Association is a Milan-based non-profit organization that works on the prevention and treatment of juvenile victims of abuse and ill-treatment. Since 1979 CAF welcomes children and youth removed from their families by the courts at its residential facilities.
Cerebral Palsy Midlands was the chosen charity of the winner of the Bake-Off at our UK office, with 13 budding bakers all trying their hand at a variety of baking techniques over the 10-week challenge.
Kidsout! believe that all children deserve fun and happiness in their lives and work every day to make it a reality. Whether they have escaped domestic violence or live daily in poverty, KidsOut! provides disadvantaged children across the UK with exciting memories to cherish.
The InterFinancial Excellence in Economics Scholarship at the University of Queensland provides opportunities for academically qualified economics students who are financially disadvantaged, in memory of Paul Rogers, a dearly-missed partner in Brisbane.
QUT the Law Founders’ Scholarship Fund offers support to first-year law students experiencing financial hardship. Since the first Law Founders’ scholarships were awarded nearly 20 years ago, the generosity of donors has financed close to 100 scholarships. Many of the recipients now enjoy established and highly successful professional careers. QUT Law Founders are passionate about the power of education and believe scholarships not only have the power to impact a students’ education, but also encourage a healthy and diverse legal profession.
From all of us at Clairfield we wish you a joyous holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year!
