What is Community Foundations
It is deliberately positioned as an investment activity as opposed to a responsibility because putting something back into our communities is not a burden to us but is something we want to do.
The core brand proposition that will emerge and become an intrinsic part of the business is that the O’Keefe Group is a community and that all our stakeholders (employees, sub-contractors, clients, suppliers and others) all have a role to play in the evolution of the organisation. As a major element of this brand position Community Foundations is the vehicle through which the O’Keefe Group interacts with, and gives back to, its wider community.
It has been designed to enable our staff and other important stakeholders to become actively involved through volunteering and offering their skills and experience to the organisations we are supporting. It is also our hope that what we do for these organisations will engage our staff, clients and suppliers alike and make them feel proud of our collective efforts.
In 2018, we will continue to support our chosen charity 21 Together and we will begin working closely with K Sports in Kent and Blackheath Rugby Club in Greenwich. We will also continue to work with the Kent Construction Group, the SE London and Sevenoaks Chambers of Commerce and other industry and local charities.
