Our approach

Our approach

Read Westpac Foundation’s 2017 Annual Report (PDF 2MB) for the latest overview of how we’re helping fellow Australians in need.

We want our community partners to be around for the long-term in order to drive lasting social change. We do this by:

  • Fostering deep, long-term partnerships with our grantees to ensure their future sustainability
  • Building the internal capacity of our grantees with a blend of financial and non-financial support
  • Using the skills and expertise of Westpac Group staff and our social sector partners for the benefit of our grantees.

Westpac Changemakers Program

The Westpac Changemakers Program gives Westpac Foundation grant recipients, Westpac Scholars and community partners access to a wide range of skills, expertise and resources leveraged through Westpac Group and its employees.


Our approach is to foster deep, long-term partnerships with the organisations we support to increase their financial sustainability, organisational effectiveness and social impact. We work in consultation with organisations to identify their unique support needs and provide tailored and flexible solutions that tap into our strengths in areas such as finance, legal, risk management, HR and leadership, business development, marketing, technology and innovation.
