10 Years - over $10 Million given away

For a decade, Greater Charitable Foundation has been dedicated to improving life outcomes of people across NSW and South-East Queensland by funding initiatives that are aimed at making a long-term impact on those they support.

We achieve this by providing around $1million annually to programs that are designed to improve the financial wellbeing of their beneficiaries.

Reaching the $10 million milestone is something we are exceptional proud of, as is the impact and social value we have contributed to our communities.

This important milestone has provided an opportunity to reflect on the positive impacts and experiences the Foundation’s partnerships have contributed to individuals, families and communities and showcase the incredible achievements resulting from our program funding.

Throughout November, we will again recognise the incredible partnerships forged across our first decade and highlight many of the “Greater Good” moments.
