Join Our Team

Australian Communities Foundation is a non-profit, intermediary foundation working with hundreds of everyday philanthropists to support structured giving, address social issues, and create positive, community-led change.

We are currently home to more than 450 funds and foundations led by families, individuals, giving groups, and corporate/NFP organisations across Australia. In our 25th year, we have grown into one of Australia’s largest community foundations with a unique national focus. Each year, we disburse more than 1,000 grants totalling more than $20 million.

We foster a supportive, collaborative, values-led, and flexible team environment. You will have the opportunity to be involved in projects that make a meaningful difference to people and planet. We believe in a fairer Australia – one where social, environmental and cultural justice is the norm – and if you want to join our team, you should too!

Our vision: Activate a nation of givers to create a fairer and more sustainable Australia.

Our role: As a broker of change, we enable, support and amplify giving.

Our promise: We are an organisation built on strong values, using capital as a means of achieving impact.

Our values: Inclusion, Agency, Courage and Fairness.
