Inspiring lasting community benefit
Supporting the communities in which we live and work has been an important part of Macquarie’s activities since our inception in 1969. In that time, our people have devoted thousands of hours to work with non-profit organisations around the world and contributed more than $A330 million to drive social change at the local community level.
We are delighted to mark our 50th anniversary by extending this tradition with a further $A50 million commitment. It is expected to be awarded to five non-profit organisations ($A10 million each) over a five-year period to fund projects globally that will have a lasting community benefit.
This new global award seeks to initiate or build on bold ideas that address an area of social need. We encourage non-profits to be imaginative in their thinking about the enduring outcomes they can achieve with this funding.
Applications are now closed. Finalists and winners will be announced from May 2019.
