Who we are

Foundation SA exists to create a connected, resilient, sustainable South Australia where everyone belongs. We do this by inspiring generosity and inclusivity, making philanthropy accessible and fun.

We elevate awareness of grass roots non-profits and community organisations, connecting them with communities, people and resources.

And we do all of this with a commitment to actively listening to our community and supporting organisations where we can make intentional change.

We help make tax deductible donations easy

Depending on your individual circumstances, we offer a range of easy giving pathways to help you make tax deductible donations to local communities or the cause of your choice. Select from these giving options.

Donate to Foundation SA

You can choose to give to Foundation SA to support local communities through our grant programs such as the Neighbourhood Grants and Disaster Recovery grants. Through these grant programs, your funding is collectively pooled to grow your impact and distributed to recipients as part of our grants program.
