We are very proud supporters of many local charities, and over the last few years we have had the joy of partnering with STEPS Charity as our main philanthropic focus.
During 2016-17, Ben Murphy and his team, with the support and generosity of many businesses, tradespeople and individuals, built ‘Murphy House’, the custom designed student accommodation complex at STEPS Pathways College.
The College is the first of its kind in Australia, giving young adults with a disability the opportunity to learn skills for a lifetime of independence. Following the completion of ‘Murphy House’, BA Murphy Constructions remains passionate about helping STEPS Charity to reach its fundraising goal of $800,000 each year to keep the College running.
In addition to a range of fundraising activities throughout the year, BA Murphy Constructions have been proud to be the major sponsor of STEPS Charity’s major annual appeal, and one of the Coast’s most anticipated fundraising events, The STEPS Grand Winter Ball.
In addition to our ongoing sponsorship of The STEPS Grand Winter Ball, we support and host a range of fundraising events on behalf of STEPS Charity including race nights and golf days. We’re proud to be joined at these events by our network of friends and suppliers. It’s rewarding to see the difference we can all make together.
In 2018 BA Murphy Constructions built two homes in the popular Aura development, donating 100% of our proﬁts from this project to STEPS Charity. This donation went towards the ongoing running costs of STEPS Pathways College, and helped widen the community awareness of the cause.
STEPS Charity recognises select supporters as ‘Living Legends’. These are local businesses who share their vision of creating a brighter future for people with a disability and are driven by social purpose. We are proud to be recognised as a ‘Living Legend’ for our commitment to STEPS Charity and the difference they are making in the disability sphere in our community.
BA Murphy are proud to be the builders of the incredible EndED Butterfly house in Mooloolah Valley. This is the first residential care facility in Australia specifically for families suffering from eating disorders, This life changing facility aims to bring hope to countless Australian families, a dream we are excited to help bring to life.
We believe we have a social responsibility to do what we can to create a stronger community, through the resources available to us; and we encourage all team members to give back to the community. This is exemplified in our work and the project we are involved in.
