About ASX Thomson Reuters Charity Foundation

ASX Thomson Reuters Charity Foundation welcomes entries into the Annual Financial & Media Markets Charity Regatta, on Friday 10th November 2017 to be hosted by the Middle Harbour Yacht Club. The purpose of the event is to raise over $100,000 for Australian Based Children’s and Medical Research charities. This will be added to the $1 million we are targeting to raise from our annual charity golf day.

Some charities we supported this year include Autism Spectrum, Shine for Kids, The Shepherd Centre, Sane, Heart Research Institute and many more.

We are seeking the donation of as many yachts – with a skipper and one crew if possible. Each of these yachts will be ‘sold’ to corporate sponsors for the day to raise funds for the charities. The corporate sponsors will help crew and race the yachts.

We have already secured a good number of corporate sponsors who will need a yacht, so we need to start making arrangements now.

In the first instance please fill out the attached yacht donation form and send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  tel: 9373 1985
