Foundation SA is here to provide long-term sustainable support to our community.

We are building a legacy for the future. All donations to Foundation SA are responsibly invested and create a permanent pool of funds (corpus) that exist in perpetuity. Income is distributed to community organisations and charitable causes.

Donors can choose to donate an amount annually or monthly or make a one-off donation and take advantage of the tax benefits available for charitable donations.

Grant rounds will be held each year for the Main and Extension Funds focusing on areas of need identified through evidence-based research and our Vital Signs data.


Disaster Recovery Fund

At times of natural disaster, we will open our Disaster Recovery Fund. Donations to the Disaster Recovery Fund will go directly to the organisations working with impacted communities in South Australia.

You can donate in the following ways:

Absolutely. We understand circumstances may change and there is no long term commitment on your part. You are 100% free to change anything you like, any time at all. Simply contact us with what you’d like to do (e.g., cancel the recurring donation, change the amount or change which fund you are donating to) and we’ll do the rest.
