Why is this important?

Through the NAB Foundation, we support social impact in a number of ways. We offer grants, support advocacy and communication activities, provide capacity building, skilled volunteering and mentoring support, and look for impact investment opportunities that deliver both a financial return and positive social outcomes.

The impact investment market is an evolving one and we believe this is an innovative way to support financially sustainable initiatives that address social issues. Measuring outcomes is also a priority for us. We want to work with community organisations that seek to measure their outcomes and understand how they’re making a difference.

What do we do?

We currently support seven organisations that are improving the mental health and wellbeing of Australians through our 2016 Stronger Minds grants program. Through consultation with sector experts and the use of research, including the NAB Quarterly Australian Wellbeing Index, we’ve identified areas of need and demographic groups that are most vulnerable. This has allowed us to focus our grants program in the areas of research, youth, rural and remote Australia and social inclusion.

2017 Grants program

Please note: The NAB Foundation is currently closed for grant applications and does not accept unsolicited grant requests.

The approach for our 2017 grants program is currently being reviewed and will be confirmed and communicated via this webpage in early 2017. If you would like to be added to the contact list for further information, when available, please email us.
