About Us


The VGI Partners Foundation was established in 2018 with three principal objectives:

  • to further social cohesion;
  • to promote the health and wellbeing of Australian children; and
  • to provide support to the families of people who have made a significant personal sacrifice while contributing to Australian society.


In 2018, VGI Partners also established a Charitable Foundation class of investment units in the existing VGI Funds. Management and performance fees generated by the charitable class of units will be donated in perpetuity to the VGI Partners Foundation.


The VGI Partners Foundation has three board directors who also serve as the gifting committee: Robert Luciano, Samantha Luciano and Silvia Bazon. The gifting committee meets at least once a year to select programs to support and review the progress of existing programs.


The VGI Partners Foundation does not solicit requests for funding.


The Foundation collaborates on programs with community and philanthropic partners to catalyse positive change, with an emphasis on research and education. Below are some of the eligible organisations that have received valuable support:

Wandering Warriors


Wandering Warriors is a Veterans Charity that provides support to Australian Defence Force veterans transitioning back into civilian life, with emphasis on higher education. Military skills don’t always translate readily or practically into the civilian world.  Veterans often need further education or additional skills as they enter life post their military career.  Wandering Warriors has and continues to link with institutions that provide higher education and other training programs for veterans in preparation for employment post their military service.

Wanderers Education Program


The Wanderers Education Program provides members of the Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) with merit-based higher and vocational education, as well as other professional and personal development opportunities in order to build individual and familial resilience and prepare them for post-service life.
