Your donation will support our work targeting carefully assessed projects that address areas of particular need or opportunity, managed by credible organisations with solid track records in their particular fields.

The Ian Potter Foundation is a Public Ancillary Fund (ABN 77 950 227 010), and we rely on public support to maximise our philanthropic grantmaking. 

We make grants across a range of community interests. While each of our program areas has its own grantmaking priorities and objectives, the Foundation’s overarching approach is to fund prevention rather than cure and to support and encourage excellence.

We also look for innovative solutions and ideas and assess the long-term sustainability of the projects we support. As a contemporary philanthropic foundation, we believe it is important to work in collaboration with others and we take a strategic approach to grant-making to try to ensure each grant has the greatest possible impact on a particular problem, challenge or opportunity.

To lend your support to this work you can donate in a variety of ways:

  • one-off donations
  • regular donations
  • bequests.

 If you are interested in making a bequest to the Foundation these can be managed in a variety of ways. We would be happy to discuss options with you. Please contact us on 03 9650 3188.
