The Audi Foundation, a corporate philanthropic foundation set up by Audi Australia and the Audi Australia Dealer Network, marked a significant milestone in 2022: five years of supporting progressive Australian charities to drive meaningful change.

Through its charity partners, the Audi Foundation has had a positive impact on over 6 million people across the country. The Audi Foundation provides funding to not-for-profit organisations that share the same focus to drive progress and create meaningful change in Australian communities.

Since 2017, the Audi Foundation has been delivering support via three core pillars of activity: fuelling progressive approaches to medical technology and treatment, shaping education and career futures (particularly in STEM), and driving positive mental health outcomes. This dedication to supporting sustainable communities will continue over the next twelve months, with the Audi Foundation committing an additional $1 million in funding through to the end of 2023.

“It is humbling to achieve this milestone in the Foundation’s journey. Delivering $5 million in support in five years is no easy feat and it is a testament to the commitment and generosity of our dealer network, our customers and other supporters across the country,” said Paul Sansom, Chairman of the Audi Foundation.

“The charity partners that we work with reflect the core progressive values of Audi and help us deliver back to the Australian community, which has been so supportive of our brand over the years.”

The eight partners that the Audi Foundation provides funding to are Country Education Foundation (CEF), Humpty Dumpty Foundation, ReachOut, R U OK?, The Smith Family, Charlie Teo Foundation, Youth Opportunities and Zephyr Education.

The foundations tackled various different causes ranging from helping rural and regional communities support their local school-leavers all the way to providing medical aid, equipment and mental health services across all age groups.

These partnerships benefit the communities they serve from a close working partnership between Audi Australia and the Audi Australia Dealer Network, with many fundraising and engagement events being held in showrooms right around the country.
