Our approach

Invest

We grant and invest in organisations and communities across Australia, funding early exploration to substantial investment.

Our philanthropic funding extends beyond traditional grant-making to impact investing.

To date we've granted around $800 million to more than 200 partners, and invested $100 million in a portfolio of impact investments aligned to our purpose.

Grant-making

We take a targeted approach to grant-making, working alongside organisations and our philanthropic peers to find ways to create change together.

Most of our grants are by direct engagement with partners, initiated by PRF, but sometimes we hold open grant rounds to explore promising and innovative initiatives to create social change. This targeted approach encourages long-term partnerships, regularly tested by independent evaluation.

We do not accept unsolicited grant proposals, however we encourage you to subscribe to our mailing list to stay informed of any grant opportunities.

PRF pays what it takes by ensuring overheads are accounted for in our grant-making process.

Impact investment

Impact investing is a powerful and financially sustainable tool for philanthropy to use alongside traditional grant-making opportunities. It has enormous potential as a catalytic market builder in finding innovative and influential ways to improve the lives of people experiencing disadvantage.

We aim to generate a greater appetite and understanding for how impact investing can be used to create positive change.

To date we have invested $100 million in a portfolio of impact investments aligned to our purpose. You can read more about our impact investing news here.
