Sony Foundation Australia is the charitable arm of the Sony Group of Companies operating in Australia including Sony Australia, Sony Music, Sony Pictures Releasing, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Sony ATV Music Publishing and Sony DADC. We collaborate with Sony’s business partners and Australians to create a ripple effect of change in the lives of young Australians who are falling through the gap.
Since its inception in 1998, Sony Foundation Australia has raised over $33 million to youth-related causes as the charitable arm of the Sony Group of Companies operating in Australia including; Sony Australia, Sony Music, Sony Pictures Releasing, Sony Interactive Entertainment, Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Sony ATV Music Publishing and Sony DADC.
Sony Foundation Australia aims to improve young Australian’s health and wellbeing through positive experiences and social change in areas underfunded by society. We do this by being the voice for our young people, the champion of the cause, the answer to the gap in the system. We unite the Sony companies, their business partners and Australians to raise funds to improve the lives of young Australians suffering from severe illness, disability and homelessness. Through the power of Sony, this collaborative community has the unique ability to create far greater long term solutions that change people’s lives than if we operated in silos.
We are fuelled by the Sony value of creating “communities of interest” that deliver ‘Kando’ – a sense of excitement, wonder or emotion that is born at the intersection of people and their dreams to establish a rich and fulfilling society. Sony Foundation Australia (hereinafter referred to as 'Sony Foundation') brings this to life through its core programs You Can, Children’s Holiday Camps, Youth off the Streets and Musicians Making a Difference and through our Corporate Partner network.
