Organisations we support

We provide support to a number of organisations and community projects across Australia. 

The Bennelong Foundation provides support to a number of organisations and community projects across Australia, which in turn enables these organisations to deliver a broad range of initiatives to support the community in which we live. Some of the organisations we have supported are highlighted below giving their perspective on the grants provided and the impact to their organisations. Our latest annual report gives a complete list of organisations we are currently supporting. 

New Colombo Plan (NCP)

The Bennelong Foundation, in partnership with The Myer Foundation and Asialink Business, is pleased to be the major philanthropic partner in delivering the Pre-Departure Cross-Cultural Intelligence Training for the New Colombo Plan (NCP) mobility program. The NCP is a signature initiative of DFAT and the Australian Government. The Bennelong Foundation wishes to support NCP participants to gain the most from their in-country experience, as well as providing life skills for their future careers,  by providing a pre-departure, cross-cultural training program.

 

The Bennelong Foundation’s directors including, Carena Shankar, the Hon. Phil Honeywood, as well as the Foundation's CEO Sandra Jacobs, sit on the program's steering committee which comprises representative members from each section of the partnership.

The  Cathy Freeman Foundation

The Cathy Freeman Foundation (CFF) helps Indigenous children experience their potential in school, and beyond. The Foundation delivers five programs that travel the journey of a child’s education from Pre Prep through to Year 12. The programs help broaden horizons and focus on improving school attendance, behaviour, and literacy.

 

The Bennelong Foundation has made a five-year commitment to support the CFF to establish and deliver the program in Woorabinda, Central Queensland.

 

Community and school partners value the positive impact of CFF’s work, and appreciate its collaborative approach and long-term commitment to the community.

The Bennelong Foundation scholarship and Internship program 

The collaboration between the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Melbourne and the Bennelong Foundation is having a tremendous impact on the Faculty as well as current recipient, Kim Vo.
 
We truly appreciate your continuing support of the Faculty of Business and Economics and look forward to updating the foundation on the impact the scholarship will have in the future. We thank you for your belief in the transformative power of education and look forward to strengthening our collaboration with the Bennelong Foundation.

The opportunity not only supports the students with their studies but also provides our associated businesses with the opportunity to provide hands-on and practical opportunities for these students to receive meaningful work experience and to build their professional confidence and social capital.
