Our 2023 Sponsors
Over the last 25+ years, the ASF Awards Night has established a profound legacy, and its success lies with our sponsors from the stockbroking and finance communities.
We would like to thank all of our generous sponsors who continue to the magic happen!
Support us to make a difference
The ASF has raised and contributed over $9.5 million to our charities. The ASF employs no people, its costs are minimal and is thus in a position to distribute the vast majority of contributions.
Directors and the organising committee are people working in and connected to the stockbroking industry
The ASF Directors meet with each charity every year, and receive regular circulars as well as annual financial reports, but do not dictate how the donated funds should be spent. We believe the charities themselves are in the best position to determine this. We host an annual lunch for representatives of the charities, which has fostered beneficial cross-fertilisation between many and assisted some smaller organisations to negotiate roadblocks in the pursuit of government assistance.
Since our creation, the ASF has donated over $3 million to the Matthew Talbot Hostel, which makes us the largest single supporter of this critical facility. For others, we are a vital part of their budget as they strive to stretch their funds between competing claims. We often receive correspondence directly from individuals and families who have benefitted from our assistance to a charity.
The ASF receives many appeals for assistance every year from a wide range of worthwhile causes.
As we do not have an invested pool of funds from which we can distribute earnings, we can only utilise what is raised at each fundraising function.
As a policy, the Directors have determined that we should be meaningful to a relatively small number of charities rather than be insignificant to a larger number.
