Grant Thornton Foundation

In October 2014 Grant Thornton Australia launched The Grant Thornton Foundation to build a co-ordinated approach to charitable giving across Australia which will help unlock the potential for growth in communities.

The Grant Thornton Foundation vision: Deliver a tangible benefit to our community partners through our people helping our charity partners grow.

We select our National and Local Charity Partners through our commitment and focus to helping Growing Youth.

The Foundation is driven by participation, volunteering and mentoring.

If you would like to donate to the Grant Thornton Foundation please email for more details.

Direct applications and sponsorship requests to the Grant Thornton Foundation are not accepted. Applications are made by Grant Thornton Australia partners and employees on behalf of the community organisations and charities with which they work.

Unlocking the potential for growth in our local communities

In the past 12 months, Grant Thornton has proudly supported a number of national charities – including The Streets Movement Organisation.

The Streets Movement is a community development organisation that provides programs, pathways and opportunities for the disconnected, forgotten and wayward, helping them re-engage with family, education, and community.

To hear their story, watch this video.

Connection: Unlocking our community potential

At Grant Thornton Australia we work to unlock the potential for growth in our clients, our people and our communities. Our focus on corporate social responsibility, both through the Grant Thornton Foundation, and through our office-based community projects, helps us to do this.

Cyclone Pam & the Won Smol Bag project – Vanuatu

In March 2015, the Grant Thornton Foundation and Grant Thornton Australia jointly pledged a total of $50,000 to World Vision’s Cyclone Pam appeal and the Won Smol Bag project, Vanuatu. World Vision told us they were going to be working closely with the Government of Vanuatu’s National Disaster Management Office to plan a rapid needs assessment and get help to where it was needed. This video from World Vision thanks Grant Thornton for our support and explains where the money was spent.
