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 does not solicit requests for funding.
