Our approach

Influence

As Australia's largest philanthropic foundation, we are uniquely positioned to use our platform to amplify other voices. We aim to positively influence policy and outcomes through collaboration and advocacy.

Influencing outcomes

We want to create an environment where people and places can craft futures where they can thrive. This is work that must be done in partnership with others if we are to address the conditions that are holding people, places and systems back.

We focus on influencing outcomes for:

People: for example, decrease the number of children living in poverty; increase the proportion of children who start school developmentally on track; increase educational equity; increase the proportion of young people engaged in education, employment and/or work; and ensure 10-year-olds aren’t incarcerated

Places: for example, improve the self-determination and thriving nature of communities which have previously experienced intergenerational disadvantage

Conditions: by shifting hearts and minds, and positively influencing policies, practices and processes.

We invest in initiatives that contribute to our long-term goals. But we understand that we can’t make a difference alone and that we need to work with others to create impactful lasting change.

Our approach

We invest in and partner with organisations and communities across Australia that focus on enabling people and places to thrive. We build the capability of organisations and the for-purpose sector and we aim to influence through collaboration and advocacy.
