Macquarie Group Foundation
In Asia we support organisations providing better migration outcomes for migrant workers as a means to combat modern slavery.
Since late 2014, we have been directing efforts towards preventing and responding to modern slavery, including a focus on issues affecting migrant domestic workers. Find out more about in this regional research report, which identified key recommendations and insights about how we can create better migration outcomes.
In Australia we support organisations providing economic engagement for young people through education, employment and training.
Find out more about the Australian focus area by reading research we commissioned by the Centre for Social Impact and worked on with McKinsey & Company and AlphaBeta. We have also commissioned research through the Centre for Evidence and Implementation that reviewed the effectiveness of interventions in educational and employment outcomes for young people.
In Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) we are committed to supporting organisations that promote social mobility for young people, through education and employment opportunities.
In 2019, Macquarie celebrated a decade of involvement in the Community Resourcing programme (commonly known as CoRe) in partnership with Slaughter and May and Islington Giving.
As a founding funder and member of the BIG Alliance (Businesses for Islington Giving), we have sought to play an integral role in the borough, supporting Islington Giving and the BIG Alliance team to run their education programme, Mentoring Works.
The Foundation doesn’t accept unsolicited grant proposals.
