Goodman Foundation

07 Goodman Foundation




The Goodman Foundation unites our people, properties and resources to make a tangible difference to the lives of people in our communities. Through our partnerships with an exceptional group of charities, we’re able to make a real difference, where and when it matters most. In this extraordinary year, with the Australian bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for the services of many of our partners intensified. The financial strength of the Group, however, meant the Foundation was well positioned to commit to an increased effort, with a focus on critical areas in times of disaster – mental health, distribution of food and essential goods, vulnerable people and domestic violence.


How we help

The Goodman Foundation offers support to charities within three key areas: Children and youth, Community and community health and Food rescue and environment. Support can take the form of:

    Provided to fund identified projects or needs over one to three years
  • Do good
    Goodman team volunteering or fundraising for charities
  • Give back
    Workplace giving schemes that match staff contributions dollar for dollar
  • In-kind
    Donating our expertise, warehouse space or other critical items.
