At Steinepreis Paganin we support community giving and have a number of ways in which we do this and encourage our team to do this.
The Steinepreis Paganin Charitable Foundation (SPCF)
Formed in 2012 the SPCF is a result of the strong desire of the Partners and employees of the firm to give back to the local community. The SPCF is managed by an employee based advisory committee and is overseen by the SPCF trust directors.
Through the SPCF we provide financial support to WA based charities and charitable initiatives (such as dollar for dollar donation matching and lump sum donations for specific projects).
Our focus through the SPCF is to:
- support Steinepreis Paganin Partners and employees to raise funds individually or as a group;
- deliver long-term benefits and build community sustainability;
- support a broad community need; and
- deliver a substantial portion of the funds donated to the people or cause involved.
In 2018 the firm made a commitment to provide all staff members with an additional optional paid day per year to take part in team volunteering opportunities. All team members now have the opportunity to take part in these organised events throughout the year, which encourage social responsibility and provide excellent team building opportunities.
Another way we give back to the community is through our sponsorship program. In recent years we have developed strong links with a number of the WA universities; UWA Blackstone Society, Notre Dame Law Society, Curtin Law Society and Murdoch Law Society. We also have supported and continue to support local sports clubs including the Perry Lakes Hawks and North Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club.
Over the last 7+ years we have supported a number of charities and events through these initiatives and we are always on the look out for new opportunities to support our local community so that we can continue this engagement with community giving into the future.
