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.


Join us for a night of competitive fun against other BNI WA chapters at the BNI Foundation’s Quiz Night at Hellenic Macedonian Centre on Saturday the 9th of September. Kicking off at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

You can bring along your own platters of food to share with the table and drinks can be purchased at the bar.


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.

Start a Business Voices™ Initiative

The Business Voices (BV) initiative pairs BNI members and concerned, engaged and motivated businesses and community groups, with schools and educational organisations to help them find the resources they need to have maximum impact on the kids of our communities. Business Voices is an in-kind, action-oriented program. BNI is Ground Zero for this initiative.

It is easier than ever to make a difference to children’s education in your local community.  BNI Chapters can ‘adopt’ a school to support.  Five different Business Voices™projects are recommended to conduct for the ‘adopted’ school.  Chapters can choose how many and which projects they would like to conduct.

The recommended Business Voices™ projects are:

  1. School Supply Drive
  2. Book Drive
  3. Fundraising for a Givers Gain Grant
  4. Career event/activity

Email the Chief Volunteer Officer, Pauline Marcoux, at if you are interested in ‘adopting’ a school and starting a Business Voices™ project.

Don’t hesitate!  Get started today by talking to your Chapter members.


The BNI Foundation gives grants by to a school that demonstrates need. The school must be an Australian public school and a not for profit organisation as recognised by the ATO.
