The Environmental Giving Pledge

Tagged in: National

We became one of Australia’s leading environmental funders after announcing a $10 million funding increase over three years to 2022.

Our foundation seeks to lead by example, highlight the significance of the issue, be targeted in the areas we seek to fund and follow words with action and funding — and we invite others to join us.

The Foundation partnered with The Myer Foundation and Sidney Myer Foundation to initiate an Australian freshwater mapping study using a $500,000 up-front investment to determine where philanthropic funding can make the biggest impact.

Now The Ian Potter Foundation and our partner The Myer Foundation have jointly agreed to commit $10 million over 10 years to create a new independent water policy centre.

That is why we support the AEGN’s Environmental Giving Pledge to reach $50 million in five years.
