COPPERSTONE’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) philosophy is simple – to treat others the way we wish to be treated. We have long lived by the mantra, “doing well by doing good.” This philosophy is demonstrated through our core values and involvement in charitable efforts.
Since COPPERSTONE was established, charity events and supporting NGO’s and other charitable causes has been at the core of what we do.
We have supported numerous charities through fundraisers, gala events, celebrity charity auctions and charity dinners. We also raised funds and awareness for various causes through our SA Bachelor & Bachelorette competition, which evolved in the Humanitarian of the Year competition and currently through our flagship competition, Talent Search SA – where we find Artists with a Purpose- talent acts who also believe in bringing about change to our communities and the country.
Since COPPERSTONE was started, we have been blessed enough to have been able to support various charities and communities in need. Over the past 15 years we raised more than R1 million in funds to numerous well-deserved NGO’s and communities. We also created much-needed awareness through various charity campaigns, as well as products and services to communities in need.
Some of the charities and communities we supported thus far include: CANSA (The Cancer Association of South Africa), Jacaranda Children’s Home, Louis Botha Children’s Home, Berg-en-Dal, SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), Siyazigabisa Children’s Home, Ripple Reading, Rooihuiskraal Library, Wespoort NG Church, Imizamo Yethu Community Centre, CANSA TLC Nicus Lodge, Reach for a Dream, Amadea Safe House, Foodbank SA, Peas in a Pod, The Princess Project, Theatre Benevolent Fund (TBF) and CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation).
Words such as “charity” and “philanthropy” describe a voluntary act, a matter of kindness rather than duty. For us giving back is more a duty we are obligated to do while we’re renting our space on earth. Or maybe it is a combination of kindness and duty- a gift we HAVE to give.
Since COPPERSTONE was started, we have partnered with numerous Corporates who generously supports all our charity initiatives. We are beyond grateful to have partnered with amazing sponsors and companies who cares, that enable us to make an impact in the lives of others through our various annual charity drives, outreaches and awareness campaigns. Without the support and encouragement of our partners, we would not have been able to achieve the outcomes we have for the past 15 years. Thank you so much for your continued support!
