The BNI Foundation has been serving children and education globally since 1998.

The BNI Foundation is helping to change lives by improving circumstances for children facing financial instability that negatively affect their educational opportunities. We are excited that the year 2020 is the inaugural year for BNI Foundation Australia. We support initiatives that provide resources to educators and organisations that make success easier for kids, either by removing barriers or by providing incentives for focusing on studies. For us, the mechanism to help with this shift is investing our time, treasure, and talent to assist in education where we can. We do this through our Business Voices™ Initiative and our Givers Gain® Grant Program.

Help us build our Givers Gain Gift fund

We are about to open another round of Givers Gain Gifts to eligible schools and charities. There is never enough funding to go around. Givers Gain Gifts are small donations we gift to schools to help with those small obstacles schools encounter due to a lack of budget. Schools and charities use these gifts to fund tutors, school supplies, learning tools and for mental health. We are asking for your help to build this fund so we can continue our Givers Gain Gift program. Your donation is tax deductible. Please follow the link and donate today.


Recognition is very important in the BNI Foundation Australia. Our donors are the ones that make our mission to support children’s education become a reality. Donations are financial and of in-kind services. Please take a moment to recognise those individuals, businesses and BNI Chapters that have provided the BNI Foundation Australia with such tremendous support.
