Centrepoint Alliance has launched a charitable foundation, the Centrepoint Alliance Foundation, which will leverage the resources of Centrepoint to support people in need.
The foundation would provide funding and assistance to disadvantaged people across the globe to help them access medical, healthcare, education, and other assistance as required.
Centrepoint Alliance managing director, John de Zwart said the foundation was a way to build on the fundraising activities already undertaken by the non-institutionally owned financial services firm at its last two conferences, including raising over $100,000 to support disadvantaged groups such as a Thai Orphanage, a Fijian infant and primary school, and youth cancer charity, CanTeen.
“We felt establishing the Centrepoint Foundation was a good way to build on these achievements and to bring advisers together to have a bigger impact in supporting people in need,” Zwart said
“The foundation will provide a framework for Centrepoint advisers and licensees to work with each other as well as work with their own staff and their own client networks in order to raise funds via our charity partners.”
The foundation’s first partnership would be with beyondblue, the independent organisation that works to raise awareness of depression, anxiety, and suicide prevention.
