Our Community Investment > Projects & Partners
Crescent Wealth is a passionate believer in the idea of prospering collectively.
That is why we are establishing strategic partnerships with the aim to develop ideas, ideas that will drive lasting social impact, can be sustained, and may be replicated across regions to benefit every facet of Australian communities for years to come.
To achieve this, we support four key areas of focus for community development, including:
1. Pathways to employment
It is important for Crescent Wealth to be an active community participant. We plan to work with organisations that have existing programs targeting the areas most relevant to our clients. Our first partner for this purpose is with the Crescent Institute who for the last 7 years have hosted Premiers & former Prime Ministers, CEO’s of top-tier companies and prominent thought leaders to share with you their life lessons in their journey to success. As a result of the event, numerous participants have come away with job opportunities, business partnerships and a stronger professional network.
2. Health & Fitness
A healthy and active community can lead to a more prosperous community. Our first two partners are the Sydney based Auburn Tigers Women's Australian Football Club and the Crescents of Brisbane for the Crescent Wealth CresWalk 2013.
3. Pathways to higher education
We are strong believers in higher education leading to a stronger, more prosperous community. An example of this Crescent Wealth's partnership with the Islamic Museum of Australia, Crescent Wealth's sponsorship of Bayt Al-Zakat's Awards night for high achieving Year 12 Students, or the Crescent Wealth Award for highest achieving student at Latrobe University in the subject of Islamic Capital Markets.
4. Financial literacy
It is essential that we educate our community and clients on the importance of financially planning out their future as well as the merits of Islamic finance. This can be seen in both our Islamic Wealth for Professionals Course hosted with the Sydney Business School and University of Wollongong, or our Islamic Superannuation Information Sessions that we host throughout the year in various states in Australia, with the aims of educating the public all about Super and Islamic finance.

Today the Crescent Institute’s activities include networking events in the CBD’s of Sydney and Melbourne, networking seminars around specific issues or areas of member interest, and the Crescent Institute Mentoring program. Since 2006 the Crescent Institute has been addressed by several Premiers & Former Premiers, CEO’s of Australia’s leading companies, leading media, religious, sporting figures and corporate thought leaders, and Crescent Wealth is proud to be a major sponsor.

The Auburn Giants (Tigers) Women's Australian Football Club
The Auburn Giants team, previously known as the Auburn Tigers before their merger with the professional league GWS Giants AFL Club in 2014, serves as a wonderful example of how sport can foster positivity, cultural awareness and mutual respect among culturally diverse communities. Crescent Wealth’s sponsorship of the Auburn Giants is not only in support of this inspiring work but fulfills one of our key areas for community development being Health & Fitness with the aim of promoting the belief that an active community will lead to a more prosperous community. This team of passionate young Australian women are certainly kicking goals both on and off the field as the first women’s AFL team in Western Sydney, and Crescent Wealth is proud to be their major sponsors for the next three-years. The sponsorsip of the Auburn Giants AFL team was announced on Monday 8th April 2013 and was featured on Channel 7’s Sunrise program. Since the sponsorship of the Auburn Giants commenced, the girls have featured in an abundance of media coverage in mainstream newspapers, radio stations, popular websites and television programs, including the ABC’s 7:30 Report.
