What We Do

Our mission at Sony Foundation Australia is to improve the health and wellbeing of young Australians in need. We take on the big issues, ones that are often overlooked by society. Through facilitated philanthropy and collaboration, we endeavour to deliver social change and positive experiences to empower our next generation. We seek to be the voice for our young people, the champion of the cause, and the answer to the gap in the system.

How We Do It

Sony Foundation brings together the unique assets of the Sony companies, and through the power of entertainment, technology and creativity we inspire our partners and the public to raise significant funds for youth causes.

The Sony companies contribute to the administrative costs of the Foundation, allowing the net proceeds of funds raised to be distributed in full to all of our youth-focused causes. As well as the backing of the Sony companies, Sony Foundation is also supported by a number of dedicated and passionate corporate partners including some of Australia’s most loved and recognised brands and businesses. The achievements of the Foundation elucidate the Foundation’s unique position to deliver on its vision to support Australia’s young people.
