The Harold Mitchell Foundation works with organisations throughout Australia and the Asia-Pacific to make a positive and sustainable difference in education, health and the arts.
The Harold Mitchell Foundation proudly invests in initiatives and organisations that:
• Inspire with their leadership: They want to support organisations with vision, drive and passion – people who are committed to their communities and keen to inspire others to make a positive difference.
• Know where they are going and how they will get there: They seek to fund partners with well-defined plans that set out what they want to achieve and what it will take to achieve it.
• Will make a difference: They will only invest in initiatives and organisations that have the potential to deliver real and sustained results for individuals, communities and nations.
• Can tell their story. They want to help share the results our partners achieve and celebrate the difference they make.
The Harold Mitchell Foundation also recognises that some larger-scale initiatives will require many different sources of funding. They have therefore developed a third funding stream, the Australia Gives initiative, that will bring together other partners (including individuals, trusts, the private sector and government) to fund projects of this sort.
