Corporate Giving

Maximise your organisation’s positive social impact

We support organisations across Australia to establish and extend their giving programs.

Establish a corporate fund with us to start giving without the administrative burden on internal resources, enabling you and your team to be as engaged or as hands-off in the grantmaking as you like.

Why establish a Corporate Fund?

Organisation-wide benefits

Corporate giving has been linked to a variety of organisation-wide benefits, including improved workplace culture, greater capacity to attract and retain quality staff, wider support from the local community, and enhanced reputation and brand.

Support your triple bottom line reporting

A corporate fund is an effective way to support your commitment to measuring performance beyond profit and ensuring your business is good for both people and planet too.

Create a lasting legacy

A corporate fund enables you to build a branded fund, serving as a lasting endowment for your organisation’s giving program. If you establish your corporate fund as a donor-advised fund, all donations into your fund are ethically invested, generating regular income independent from company performance so that you can continue to maximise your positive social impact into the future.
