The Goodman Foundation aims to improve the quality of life, standard of living and health of people across the communities where Goodman operates. Its focus is on social change and improving the lives of those less privileged in our community by providing practical assistance by way of capital expenditure for equipment, funding of programs and projects, providing warehousing or commercial space, or the expertise of our people. 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 program along with regular payroll donations through the Goodman good+deeds workplace giving program.
The Goodman Foundation is represented across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, and Poland. Expansion of the Foundation is underway for North America.
Through our strategic partnerships with charities and access to the Goodman Foundation, we are building+communities and making a meaningful difference to the lives of those living in our local communities.
