Foyer Foundation

Beyond youth homelessness

The Foyer Foundation was established in 2008 to support the growth and development of the Australian Foyer Movement, similar to the United Kingdom’s Foyer Federation. It sponsors research, works with the Foyer movement globally and advocates to Government at all levels.


Paul Ramsay Foundation

Breaking cycles of disadvantage

In 2006, Paul Ramsay AO established the Paul Ramsay Foundation. A leading Australian businessman, Paul was a generous benefactor throughout his life to a variety of educational, cultural, artistic and sporting organisations. Following his death in 2014, the Foundation has continued through his generous bequest.

We continue Paul’s philanthropic legacy through a shared commitment to break cycles of disadvantage in Australia by investing in partnerships for potential. Initiatives supported by the Foundation reflect the humility, integrity and values of our founder.


Shelter NSW

A secure home for all

Shelter NSW is an independent, non-profit, member-driven organisation that has been advocating for better housing outcomes since 1975. We represent the broad interests of a diverse network of members, partners and aligned industry stakeholders who share our vision of a secure home for all NSW residents.

We are especially concerned with housing insecurity, increasingly experienced by people on low and very low incomes. We pursue our vision of an economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable housing system through critical engagement with policy and collaborative leadership initiatives with government, community and the private sector.


Philanthropy Australia

Inspiring more and better philanthropy

Philanthropy Australia is the peak body for philanthropy, serving a community of funders, social investors and social change agents. Together we work to achieve positive social, cultural, environmental and community change, by leveraging financial assets and influence. Our purpose is to inspire more and better philanthropy for a generous and inclusive Australia. Our membership consists of trusts, foundations, organisations, families, individual donors, professional advisers, intermediaries, corporates, and not-for-profit organisations.

Through our ‘Blueprint to Grow Structured Giving’, we aim to double structured giving by 2030.


For Purpose Investment Partners

Creating social impact with private sector capital

For Purpose Investment Partners (FPIP) is a not-for-profit social impact investment fund manager, created to pursue an important mission; bringing private sector capital and capabilities into sizeable businesses and projects to create significant social impact.

In the face of increasing demand for social enterprise and infrastructure solutions to support Australian communities, FPIP was established to invest in projects and organisations that deliver strong and long-term positive social outcomes while delivering investors appropriate dated risk-adjusted financial returns over the long run.



Transforming the social impact sector

Established in 2011, Sefa provides capital and capability building for purpose-driven organisations and investment opportunities for social impact investors. We empower purpose-drive organisations to grow and become resilient, while generating positive returns for investors.


Youth Action

For a society where all young people have their rights realised

Youth Action is the peak organisation representing young people and youth services in NSW. Our work helps build the capacity of young people, youth workers and youth services, and we advocate to see positive change on issues affecting these groups.

Our vision is for a society where all NSW young people are supported, engaged, valued and their rights are realised.


Justice Reform Initiative

Justice is failing

The Justice Reform Initiative is an alliance of people who share long-standing professional experience, lived experience and/or expert knowledge of the justice system, who believe there is an urgent need to reduce the number of people in Australian prisons.

We believe that prisons are ineffective as a deterrent, ineffective at reducing crime, and ineffective at addressing the drivers of criminal justice system involvement.


Foundation for Young Australians

We back young people

For more than 40 years, Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) has backed young people and youth-led initiatives to create change.

Young people are facing a series of overwhelming, complex crises across Australia. They have the vision and energy to drive historic social change but are excluded from decision-making. FYA is an independent organisation that backs them with the training, resources, and connections they need, so they have the power to create lasting change in the face of injustice.



Stories with style

PRIMER is a purpose-driven media company, and, as a social enterprise, we donate 50% of profits to charities that help women.  

At PRIMER, we elevate women’s voices, and engage readers in the issues that matter. We are passionate about the power of storytelling, and we believe that you are what you read.


Community Resources

Creating jobs that care for people and planet

Community Resources creates jobs that care for people and planet. We keep waste out of landfill, we grow and distribute fair food, and we provide community services to those who need it most. We do this to make the world fairer and life better.

We run three environmental repair social enterprises – Green ConnectSoft Landing and Resource Recovery Australia – and a range of Community Services. Last year we provided jobs for 684 people across Australia, 76% of them experiencing barriers to employment and we diverted 18,237 tonnes of waste away from landfill through reuse, repair and recycling.


Burraga Foundation

Local connections, positive partnerships

The Burraga Foundation is building a better understanding of Aboriginal Australia for all Australians.

We work in partnership with Aboriginal communities and partners, to support cultural awareness, community engagement, education and employment opportunities.

The Burraga Foundation's key initiative, the Storylines platform, provides local Aboriginal communities, schools, organisations and the broader community, with a culturally safe online environment to share and celebrate Aboriginal non-secret, non-sacred stories of history, culture and achievement.
