Goodman Foundation

Engaging with and supporting various groups in the communities where we operate is fundamental for a business focused on long-term relationships and sustainable growth.

Our work with partner charities makes a tangible difference in three key areas of focus.

Children + youth

Charity organizations who help protect, nurture and support children or young people.

Food rescue + environment

Charity organizations who reduce waste and support those in need by redistributing fresh food or useful items that would otherwise go to landfill.

Community + community health

Charity organizations who support those living with a condition, illness or disability, or whose efforts help to create a more inclusive and equitable community.

The Goodman Foundation supports social initiatives that aim to improve the quality of life, health and education, and standard of living of the people within our neighborhoods. It is funded by the Manager with no direct costs borne by the Trust.

Through the Foundation and other fundraising, we have provided around $87,000 of financial support over the last 12 months. We have also contributed to local organizations through the donation of equipment and volunteering. 

Our relationships with the Friends & Helpers Foundation, Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation, Children's Miracle Network and other organizations are continuing to make a meaningful difference in our communities.
