How we support our local community and our region’s industries

We are committed to supporting our local community, as it’s where we work and where we live – and we understand the importance of being an active part of the South East region.

Community engagement

The Macpherson Kelley Foundation

The Macpherson Kelley Foundation enables the firm to create a meaningful and effective way to engage with and assist our local community and give to causes that we are passionate about. It also provides a vehicle for our clients, their families, referral partners and businesses to do the same.

Macpherson Kelley committed to philanthropy

Complementary to the Foundation, Macpherson Kelley provides a range of philanthropic services that can benefit our clients and their businesses and help them to give back. Coinciding with the Foundation launch in early 2016, we established our national Workplace Giving program for staff to participate in. Through this program, we provide financial and volunteer support to charitable organisations and causes selected by our staff. One initiative is our ongoing participation in National Pyjama Day to raise much needed funds for this organisation that assists children in foster care across Australia.

Proud sponsors of the Jayco Dandenong Rangers

Macpherson Kelley is proud to be a major sponsor of the Jayco Dandenong Rangers team in the Women’s National Basketball League. Macpherson Kelley is committed to an ongoing sponsorship of the team, and to developing a long term relationship between our staff, our clients and the club. We live and work in this region and enjoy supporting local talent.

“Our choice to support a women’s’ sporting club is not by chance. Over 50% of our staff are female; we are committed to supporting women in business and in sport.” says James Sturgess, Legal Practice Principal. 

Industry involvement

We support industries within the region through our involvement, our resources and time; and are proud to be associated with great industry bodies.
