Our foundation

The IOOF group not only looks after the financial wellbeing of thousands of Australians but cares in other ways too, by supporting those Australians who are disadvantaged by health or circumstance.

In recognition of the long history of the IOOF group and the important role it has played in supporting the community since 1846, the IOOF Foundation was established as a not-for-profit in June 2002 as part of the demutualisation of IOOF Limited.

The IOOF Foundation provides grants that support Australian not-for-profit organisations working with disadvantaged families, disadvantaged children and youth and aged care. The IOOF Foundation is making a difference to those in need.

As at 30 June 2015, the IOOF Foundation had gifted over $11m to over 180 charities nation-wide.
