What We Do

At Sony Foundation, we take on the big issues that affect the health and wellbeing of young Australians and through facilitated philanthropy endeavour to deliver social change, positive experiences, empowerment and collaboration.

Sony Foundation does this by being the voice for our young people, the champion of the cause, the answer to the gap in the system.

Since 1998, driven by the vision of helping young people, Sony Foundation Australia has provided opportunities, support and assistance to thousands of young Australians.

How We Do It

Sony Foundation brings together the unique assets of the Sony companies, combining entertainment and philanthropy to inspire its 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.

The achievements of the Foundation elucidate the Foundation’s unique position to deliver on its vision to support Australia’s young people.
