Partners for life


The McKinley Plowman Community Fund was established to allow our clients, staff and directors to contribute funds to charitable organisations in a structured and meaningful way. Since its inception, the MP+ Community fund has distributed thousands of dollars’ worth of grants that benefit various causes.

MP+ Community Fund – Recent Charity Recipients

March 2024 – We have donated $500 to ToyBox Australia – a charity dedicated to supporting Australia’s sick and disadvantaged children. Local Miss Universe Finalist Maisie Ninnim has been working hard to promote this fantastic cause and we’re proud to be able to make a contribution. Please consider donating here:

Other recent donations from the MP+ Community Fund have included $400 to the Saba Rose Button Foundation, which raises funds to help children with special needs, and their families. In particular, funds raised through SRBF pays for these children to participate in ‘intensive blocks’ of physiotherapy, for specialised equipment that is needed, for parental respite and for care in the home. We also made a donation for Dandelions WA, which supports West Aussies impacted by homelessness, domestic/family violence, ill-health, natural disaster and/or financial hardship.

COVID-19 Nurses Care Package

At the height of COVID, the nurses at Joondalup Hospital were working incredibly hard and did some amazing work in the fight against COVID-19. To recognise their efforts, McKinley Plowman donated 40 care packs – which included snacks, drinks, and even a specially prepared, ribbon-wrapped roll of toilet paper. Pictured below are the treats the nurses received, Sarah from Joondalup Hospital with Finance Director Paul Moran, and the all-important toilet rolls!

Following the donation, Deputy CEO of Joondalup Health Campus Ben Irish sent us the following letter after the COVID-19 nurses at the hospital received our packs:

We would like to pass on our heartfelt thanks for your very generous donation to our hospital during the last few weeks. We very much appreciate the support of our local community members during these busy and confronting times.

As you can imagine, the hospital spends a considerable amount of time planning for dealing with times like these but with the additional acknowledgement and support from our local businesses, schools and families that job is made much easier.

Your donation and acts of kindness continue to motivate our staff as they work to care for our community and continue to receive and treat all of our patients.

Thank you again so much for your contribution to our hospital for which we are very grateful.

Conservation Volunteers Australia

Our Community Fund granted $3,000 to the Whitfords Nodes project led by Conservation Volunteers Australia. This project aims to rehabilitate and maintain the dunes just north of Hillarys Boat Harbour, and MP+ Staff then got involved in the project in a hands-on capacity:

Lions Cancer Institute – Special Children’s Christmas Big Day Out

Another recent grant made by the MP+ Community Fund was to a great cause: the Lions Cancer Institute Special Children’s Christmas Big Day Out. This is an event run purely on donations from businesses and the public, that helps the Lions Cancer Institute take local sick, handicapped and severely disabled children for an awesome day out at the movies. These kids fight significant illnesses and disabilities every day, and it is a great program that the Institute is running to get them out and about just in time for Christmas.

Other charities we have donated to include:

• Purple Bra Day
• Pink Ribbon Day
• Daffodil Day
• Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea
• Footy Colours Day
• Movember
• Jeans for Genes
• Radio Lollipop
• Bowel Cancer Australia
• The Smith Family
• Australian Red Cross

Our whole team gets involved through our ‘Free Dress Friday’, where everyone contributes to the chosen charity in return for their fashion freedom. It’s a fun way to generate more cash for such important causes. If you have a worthy charity, cause, or community event that you would like to nominate for consideration, then please let us know about it. We’d love to help.
