As the philanthropic arm of Macquarie Group, the Macquarie Group Foundation is one of Australia s leading corporate benefactors. Together with Macquarie staff, the Foundation has contributed more than $A300 million to thousands of community organisations since its inception in 1985, supporting programs across health, education, the arts, welfare and the environment. It also builds and strengthens Macquarie staff involvement and engagement in the communities in which they live and work.
Our pioneering approach to philanthropy has funded a range of novel approaches to community issues, including cutting-edge research, establishing awards and fellowships to encourage innovative thinking, seed funding organisations with new ideas, as well as collaborations between non-profits with shared objectives.
