We invite you to support some of Australia's most innovative and ground-breaking projects through a donation to The Ian Potter Foundation.

The Ian Potter Foundation is a Public Ancillary Fund, and we rely on public support to maximise our philanthropic grant-making. 

We make grants across a range of community interests. While each of our ten program areas has its own grant-making 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.

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.

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

  • one-off donations
  • regular donations
  • bequests

The Ian Potter Foundation is a Public Ancillary Fund (ABN 42 004 603 972), and we rely on public support to maximise our philanthropic grant-making. Donations over $2 may be tax-deductible.

To make a donation, visit our Give Now donation page.

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.
