Steadfast and its brokers actively support the communities in which we live and work, typically donating around 1% of net profit after tax to charitable causes each financial year.
Steadfast created the Steadfast Foundation to facilitate grants and charitable contributions that support charities helping people overcome adversity, with $1.3 million in donations made in its first 10 years.
The Steadfast Foundation is guided by the Steadfast Foundation Board which is responsible for reviewing all submissions and will make its funding decisions for the benefit of the community and in alignment with the philosophy of the Foundation.
Charities are often chosen based on the recommendations of our brokers in the field, and include cancer research and support, mental health, surf lifesaving, children’s causes and charities supporting the homeless and disadvantaged.
Steadfast Convention Charities
As well as the ongoing activities of the Steadfast Foundation, Steadfast brokers help raise funds each year to a local charity based near the location of the annual Steadfast Convention.
At the 2015 Convention attendees donated $200,000 to HeartKids (SA), which provides support, encouragement and hope to families of children with Heart Disease. In 2014, Convention attendees donated $165,000 to Kids With Cancer, who support children and their families impacted by Cancer. In 2013, Steadfast Convention attendees donated more than $160,000 to KidsXpress, which helps children impacted by emotional trauma.
Since the Steadfast Convention began in 1999, our brokers have raised around $960,000 for charities.
