Australian Ethical Foundation


 Our 10% difference

Every year, we donate 10% of profits (after tax and before bonus) to the Australian Ethical Foundation to create environmental and social impact in Australia and overseas. Since 1986, we’ve donated over $5 million, driving positive outcomes for people, animals and the planet. The Foundation donates funds through a public grant round, Community Grants, and a private invitation round, Strategic Grants.


Our approach

The Foundation specifically targets initiatives across People, Planet and Animals that all directly and practically address climate change.

Funding for these initiatives is targeted at both systemic and advocacy efforts, as well as grassroot projects.

It’s this approach that we believe will bring about the most significant change.
