Who We Are

We aim to add value by mobilising funds from financial and corporate Australia whilst providing a valuable networking opportunity for our corporate sponsors.

Each year we distribute over $1 million to 20 or more charities. We tap the marketing and customer entertainment dollars of all our sponsors and turn these into charity dollars through a number of major events.

  • Australia’s Biggest Charity Golf Classic & Black-Tie Gala Dinner with massive Charity Auction.
  • Australia’s Biggest Charity Race Day at Rosehill Gardens.
  • Financial & Media Markets Charity Regatta on Sydney Harbour.
  • Charity Trading Day

We also run an annual Car Raffle Prize Draw.

Our History

The ASX Group and Refinitiv (formerly Reuters/Thomson Reuters) joined forces in 1999 to form a charity foundation with the objective of helping Australian-based children’s, disability and medical research charities by organising fundraising events in conjunction with the financial markets.

To date, the combined funds distributed to a wide range of charities totals over $30 million.

Participation

Participants in the Golf Classic, Race Day and Sailing Regatta include top executives from financial and corporate Australia. The CEOs, Chairmen and Senior Executives of companies like ASX, Refinitiv, Thomson Reuters, Westpac, NAB, TPG, Morgan Stanley, BT Financial, Singapore Airlines, Magellan and many others take part in the events and compete side by side in some of corporate Australia’s most anticipated and enjoyable events.

Sponsorships

Sponsors are sought to cover as many of the costs as possible to maximise the amount distributed to the charities.

Executive Team

The Board is made up of executives from both the ASX, Refinitiv and Thomson Reuters with three independent directors. The detailed fundraising is arranged through a full and part-time Executive Team headed by a General Manager.
