We take a holistic view towards giving and we aim to always lead by example – we donate our time, treasure (cash) and talent. Through giving, we not only help make an active difference, but we reaffirm our commitment to what makes the philanthropic industry and society tick. Our daily work aims to generate dollars for worthy causes. Our give back program is how we choose to complete this cycle and keep in touch with the real and changing needs in our global community.
It is timely, to announce a new addition to our ‘give back portfolio’ this year. OKP reached out to the Greater Western Sydney in December last year to engage with its ‘Player Partnerships’ sponsorship program. This grass roots initiative paves the way to engage with the inner sanctum of the GIANTS, its football department along with its community development initiatives.
It’s the first time in 35 years OKP has brought a professional sporting code into the fold and we are proud to make the move. This club is actively focused on development, growth and community engagement.
Early on, the Greater Western Sydney GIANTS announced the establishment of the GIANTS Foundation to be chaired by Number One Ticket Holder Melissa Doyle. The GIANTS Foundation supports community organisations and charities across Western Sydney and Canberra. Read on.
GIANTS Chairman Tony Shepherd has stated that “The Giants Foundation is a vehicle for people and organisations to support the club’s important work in the community, particularly in Western Sydney and Canberra. I want to thank those who have agreed to join our inaugural board led by Melissa Doyle.”
OKP chose to support Adam Kennedy #40. He is a player that isn’t often showcased in the media but has certainly earnt his place in the team. Initially drafted from Melbourne – the Western Jets – Adam’s profile can be viewed here.
Tomorrow the Giants will be etched in history – their first preliminary final. A great achievement for a club that is yet to celebrate its 5th anniversary.
