Kelly Phelps – Travis Schultz & Partners

Kelly Phelps is the Chief Executive Officer of Travis Schultz & Partners, who is a proud supporter of SunnyKids. It was through her involvement with the annual Travis Schultz Winemakers Masterclass – backed by NAB Private Wealth, that she came to learn of the critical work we do in the community.

“Not only does SunnyKids provide practical support for children and families in need, but they have a much wider impact on society by helping to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty and disadvantage,” says Kelly.

Travis Schultz & Partners was born out of a simple idea – to establish a boutique law firm that is committed to social justice for all, with fairness, respect and compassion being the values that form the foundation of their work.

Travis Schultz & Partners are both P100 members and loyal supporters of SunnyKids, providing vital funding to our Mentoring Through Sport programs and helping support other charity events throughout the year. “Social responsibility is an integral part of who we are at TSP, so the ability to give back to the community we are a part of (and who have supported us in becoming a sustainable Sunshine Coast business) gives me and the team the most job satisfaction,” Kelly adds.

Our P100 community and loyal supporters are a vital part of our SunnyKids Village, helping us keep the wheels in motion and our critical programs up and running. Knowing that we have these relationships and ongoing commitment to our cause helps us plan for the future while also continuing to fund essential community programs.

Many of our P100 members agree that connecting with other local organisations is a highlight for them. It’s this sense of village and community mindset that underpins what we do.  “Not only are we able to give SunnyKids the guarantee of funds to implement practical programs and initiatives and see the results,” says Kelly, “but we also get to connect with other local businesses in a shared mission to support our community’s most vulnerable.”

Our P100 Village members often become SunnyKids supporters due to a deep desire to give back to the community in which they live. Often because they want to see change and they know that directing their support to SunnyKids has real and lasting impact. They also get to see and hear about the work we do in our community through regular gatherings and events. Knowing that their support and generosity is changing lives and breaking the cycle of violence is vital in building strong communities and culture.

“I believe it’s not just a nice thing to do, but an obligation of businesses to give back to their communities. Further, it has a significant impact on workplace culture and employee engagement – so win, win!” Kelly says.
