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 started the SA Bachelor & Bachelorette, Humanitarian of the Year and Talent Search competitions- which focus on 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 13 years we raised just under R1 million in funds, as well as awareness, products and services to numerous well-deserved NGO’s and communities.
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
- SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)
- Siyazigabisa Children’s Home
- CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation
- Ripple Reading
- Rooihuiskraal Library
- Wespoort NG Church
- Imizamo Yethu Community Centre
- CANSA TLC Nicus Lodge
- Reach for a Dream
- Amadea Safe House
- Foodbank SA
- The Princess Project
- Peas in a Pod
- Paratus Primary School
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.
