10 Years of Giving

In it’s first ten years of giving The Garry White Foundation supported 46 charities with over $2.Sm in funding.


It is often difficult to establish set metrics to measure the impact of the Foundation’s giving. As a guiding principal, any funding requests for $10,000 or more require an application prior and acquittal form at the conclusion of the funded project.

Within the acquittal process the applicants are asked to measure their successes and/or failures. We acknowledge that many small organisations have limited capacity for extensive metrics but many larger organisations provide detailed analysis of their outcomes.

Some notable successes include:

  • The re-emergence (after 68 years) of a presumed extinct Robust Greenwood Orchid following funding of a weed eradication project at Nardoo Hills in north-central Victoria in 2011.
  • Two young farmers forming the group Farmers for Climate Action after funding them to attend the Paris Climate Talks in 2016.
  • Co-funding a pilot program to teach “Building Respectful Relationships” which was subsequently included in the Victorian school curriculum in 2016.
  • In 2019, after three years of funding a sustained and targeted water quality campaign, the Qld government passed new Reef Protection regulations to address sources of land based water pollution to the Great Barrier Reef.
  • In 2021, becoming a founding partner of the Sustainable Table Fund which connects Australian regenerative agriculture and food systems projects with funding and investment to create systemic change.
