Australia: CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Program A Success in 2012
Last Updated: 11 December 2012

The team at Coleman Greig Lawyers has always been proud of the firm's support of the community through our Corporate Social Responsibility program, and as we come to the end of 2012, we are especially so.

We are pleased to report that Coleman Greig has raised over $100,000 for a variety of causes during the year, and we would also like to take this opportunity to thank our many clients who contributed their time and money to make this possible.

2012's community activities included:

Coleman Greig Charity Golf Day
The 16th Annual Coleman Greig Charity Golf Day raised $73,000 for St Gabriel's School, which exists to provide a caring and challenging education for children with hearing impairments and other special needs, as well as supporting the families of these children and developing their life-skills. Throughout its sixteen year history, the Golf Day has raised $735,000 for St Gabriel's – a truly great achievement.


Women in Business
The Coleman Greig Women in Business Forum raised over $25,000 in 2012 and supported various organisations and charities, such as the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the Museum of Contemporary Art's Bella Program for children with special needs, the International Women's Day Project and Alzheimer's Australia. Guest speakers this year included Anne Fulwood, Karin Adcock the founder of PANDORA Australia, Liz Ann McGregor the Director of the MCA, Deborah Hutton and Maxine McKew.

Women in Business has raised over $90,000 for charity since we started the Forum in 2007. Planning is already underway for 2013 with the Forum continuing to attract high profile speakers and participants from a wide range of industries and professions.


Beyond the Square
Coleman Greig's other major sponsorship arrangement is with Beyond the Square (formerly known as Workshops in the Arts for People with a Disability), Riverside Theatre's dedicated performing arts program for people with a disability. It is the only mainstream theatre company in Australia to have a position dedicated solely to the development of opportunities for people with a disability in the arts. The Program is about embracing differences and challenging pre-conceptions, and works across three broad areas - Community Development, Artistic Development and Outreach. In 2012, through its sponsorship of an event aimed at the local business community called Get on Stage, Coleman Greig helped to raise $44,000 for Beyond the Square. Over the last three years this event has raised a total of $123,000 for the cause.
