Many of our community partners, in addition to receiving a Foundation grant, benefit from fundraising and volunteer support from Goodman staff in our good+heart programme along with regular payroll donations through the Goodman good+deeds workplace giving programme. 

The Goodman Foundation is represented across Australia, New Zealand, North America, Greater China, United Kingdom, Japan, Brazil, France, Belgium, Hungary and Poland.  

The Goodman Foundation has a comprehensive strategy encompassing contributions to the community through the distribution of cash, volunteering, workplace giving and in-kind programmes with long-term (3+years) partnerships developed with charitable organisations underway in all Goodman locations. Through our strategic partnerships with charities, the Goodman Foundation is building communities and making a meaningful difference to the lives of disadvantaged people and vulnerable communities.
