Our community is at its best when we all work towards equality and mutual benefit. The Foundation is a mechanism where we can see tangible and intangible outcomes that help our communities and have a positive effect on both our charity partners and our workplace.
The Grant Thornton Foundation supports the community through financial donations and volunteering. We are proud of our contributions in recent years especially when they are put into context through the very real stories of:
The Grant Thornton Foundation is funded by employee workplace giving donations and an annual donation from Grant Thornton Australia Limited. The Foundation trustees allocate 50 per cent of funds to our selected national charity partners with the remaining balance allocated to our Social Responsibility Committees in each office to support local charities.
The Foundation chooses national charity partners aligned to the cause preference of its supporters and fund them on a three-year program.
Our current national and local charity partners have been selected to deliver our commitment and focus on supporting marginalised young people, support services for victims of domestic violence and young people seeking mental health support.
During 2019–2022, the Foundation also made emergency grants to: Red Cross following the 2019 bushfires, LifeLine supporting an uplift in volunteer training during the pandemic, and Magic Coat supporting displaced children from the war in Ukraine.

These reports highlight the social impact being delivered across our communities by our charity partners. Our partners work with young people that are experiencing social and economic exclusion. They focus on igniting the potential in their young people, giving them the opportunity to participate in sport, personal development, vocational training, social enterprise, providing exposure to educational horizons beyond their expectations, and to live as independently as their potential allows them.
