Helping philanthropists have impact

For over 100 years, we have connected our philanthropic clients with high-impact organisations, so that their giving goes further.

Each year, we encourage not-for-profit organisations across Australia to apply for funding through our IMPACT Philanthropy Application Program (IPAP). The process supports the grant-making decisions of many of our  philanthropy clients.

Advocating for First Nations

The Perpetual Group's vision for reconciliation is a more equal society, where First Nations Peoples have the same opportunities for prosperity and a self-determined future.

A future where First Nations individuals, organisations and communities have the support and resources to ensure good governance, economic independence and mutual respect for their cultures.  

We want to see an Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, organisations and businesses are self-sustaining, self-determined and are valued for their contribution to the Australian experience. 

Supporting a First Nations Voice to Parliament

In April 2023, we joined a group of philanthropists, who have announced a combined $17 million pledge to the Yes campaign, supporting the Voice to Parliament in the upcoming referendum. As part of the pledge, Perpetual Group has committed to provide $150,000 in funding, as a corporate, and we worked with our philanthropy clients to facilitate an additional $115,000 to support the Yes campaign
