The Lewis Foundation

The Lewis Foundation is an independent family philanthropic fund with a focus on children’s health, welfare and education.

About Us

The Lewis Foundation provides extensive funding to large charitable organisations as well as to many smaller “grass root” charities operating throughout Australia.

The Foundation actively seeks out charities which are making lasting positive impacts and which are helping to build strong, resilient, inclusive communities.

The Foundation takes a “hands on”​ approach to all distributions.  It aims to ensure that maximum leverage is achieved from its philanthropic investment.

The Foundation generally makes medium to long-term financial commitments typically for 3, 5 or 10 years, to help support recipients in a meaningful way.

The Foundation aims to grow its capital base over time to enable it to perpetually reach more people in need and to generate ongoing community benefit.

The Foundation is administered by the Lewis Family.  Granting priorities are reviewed annually and approved by the Directors.
