The Flannery Foundation

Our mission is to support Australian charities that are making a difference.

The Flannery Foundation was established by Brian and Peggy Flannery to put back into the community, primarily by helping our most vulnerable, the homeless and hungry, domestic violence victims, abused children, and the education sector.

The Foundation was established in 2010 as an Australian Private Ancillary Fund, which means the Foundation may only distribute to charitable causes in Australia known as Deductible Gift Recipients.

We are passionate about the causes we support and do our own work in finding our partners. As such we are not looking for inbound requests.

RizeUp

In Australia, domestic and family violence is the biggest social injustice that we are confronted with. It affects everyone - all races, religions and social classes.

RizeUp’s programmes promote women’s independence and decision-making in public life and relationships, which is a key outcome to preventing domestic violence. RizeUp works to shift attitudes, perceptions and challenge societal norms in Australia which have as a by-product created a toxic and unhealthy environment.

The RizeUp mission is to drive awareness of domestic and family violence within society by generating life-changing, practical support for the families affected, giving them the hope and empowerment to move on to a life free from violence.

To do this, they bring communities together, facilitate volunteers, and make real, far-reaching and practical contributions to these families.

Food Bank QLD

Foodbank is Australia’s largest food relief organisation, operating on a scale that makes it crucial to the work of the front line charities who are feeding vulnerable Australians. Foodbank provides more than 70% of the food rescued for food relief organisations nation-wide.

“The Flannery Foundation's investment doesn't just support Australia's most needy; it gives charities the reassurance and stability needed to scale their operations effectively each year."
