The Macquarie Group Foundation provides support to community organisations globally each year through financial support, volunteering and skills sharing, predominantly in the locations in which Macquarie operates.
Our work is significantly influenced by the activities of Macquarie staff with a focus on capacity building within the community sector and increasing social and economic mobility.
The Foundation’s key objective since its formal establishment in 1985 has been to support non-profit organisations within the communities Macquarie staff live and work.
Many of our grant partners, in addition to receiving a Foundation grant, benefit from fundraising and volunteer support from Macquarie staff, regular donations made through the Macquarie Giving program and have a Macquarie staff member serving on their board.
This is an enduring feature of our Foundation, and it enables us to build deep and long-term relationships with innovative and well-run community organisations around the world.
