As we work to grow awareness for our Foundation, our Ambassadors are helping us reach wider audiences and make the most of our activities.
Ambassadors are individuals who are familiar with the work we do and provide ongoing support by lending us both their expertise and time.
We created the Ambassador programme in response to enquiries from people who were motivated from personal experience to help make a difference. From the people already making a difference, the expertise they bring and their reasons for joining vary. We want to welcome more people to be ambassadors for us and are looking for motivated individuals with a wide range of skills and experience to help boost awareness of the work we do.
As an ambassador you could help us reach a much wider audience by representing our Foundation in public, using your contacts to assist the Foundation and raising its public profile. You will become a valued member of a growing and enthusiastic team, ready to support your aspirations to assist the Foundation.
“Becoming an Ambassador for The Cornerstone Foundation was an easy decision for me to make. My younger brother struggled to be accepted in life and live independently due to his complex, physical and social needs. When he died in 2014, it made me re-evaluate my own work/life balance. I decided to give up my job as a Project Manager to spend more quality time with my family and have the opportunity to give something back to the community using my skills and experience. I chose The Cornerstone Foundation because it helps people like my brother to help themselves and lead a fulfilling life within the community.”

Whether it’s while I read a magazine article and think ‘that’s a fundraising idea The Cornerstone Foundation could adopt’; or whether it’s meeting a business contact and introducing them to Cornerstone so they can become a corporate supporter; or even gathering up girlfriends for a fantastic evening at the next Cornerstone Fizz Friday event!
