Each June, the Firm holds Global Volunteer Month, a dedicated month of volunteerism around the world. In 2019, over 99% of Morgan Stanley’s Asia Pacific employees volunteered more than 32,400 hours during the campaign. As part of that effort, employees in Australia logged over 2,300 hours supporting 20 different charities.
Our workplace giving program allows employees to make a monthly, tax-deductible donation through payroll to support any one of the Firm's preferred charities.
Through Morgan Stanley’s Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP), the Firm supports non-profit organisations where our employees serve as board members or volunteers. The Firm allocates VIP grants according to the number of volunteer hours contributed.
Morgan Stanley Australia’s 2019-21 core charity partner is The Smith Family. The Smith Family provides assistance to disadvantaged children to get the most out of their education to create better futures for themselves. The charity provides multiple opportunities for children to succeed, especially through their flagship and highly successful Learning for Life program.
