The Morgans Foundation has been dedicated to supporting Australian charities since its establishment in 2005, and we are immensely proud of the impact we've been able to make. With over $17 million donated to various causes, our commitment to giving back remains steadfast. Initiatives like Big Dry Friday, launched in 2018 and raising over $6m, connects city and country and provides financial assistance where it's needed most. We deeply value the involvement of our staff, whose contributions are matched by the Foundation, amplifying the reach of our support. We recognise the ongoing need for sustained support and the importance of collective efforts in creating positive change across Australia.

Our goal is to positively impact individuals and families in need, providing guidance and education to enhance their financial well-being.

Our assistance is provided on a best endeavours basis, and depending on your needs, may involve a referral to a Financial Counsellor—a qualified professional offering free and confidential pro bono advice and support.

Big Dry Friday

A day to connect city and country, providing support where it's needed most. The concept is simple, on a Friday, once a year, city people forgo (or match) what they might spend on a nice lunch or drinks and donate it to the cause. ​

The aim is to create long-term benefits by supporting charities focused on education, mental wellbeing, healthcare and those suffering financial hardship through natural disasters.
