Vodafone Foundation helps enable charities to harness the power of mobile technology to create a healthier Australia.
We call it, ‘power for good’.
We currently support leading heart and diabetes institute, Baker IDI, to increase awareness of the health risks linked to prolonged sitting, through a Smartphone app that gives Aussies a tool to reduce their sitting time and improve their health.
We also support the Hello Sunday Morning's movement towards a better drinking culture, through a three-year partnership to fund technology platforms and apps to empower Australians to improve their relationship with alcohol.
Vodafone Foundation was established in 2002 and has donated more than $22 million to support the community. Highlights include helping to transform charities such as OzHarvest, Red Dust Models and Musicians Making A Difference through our 12-year World of Difference program. Vodafone Foundation Australia is one of 28 Vodafone Foundation’s around the world using mobile technology to make social change and improve people’s lives.
Vodafone Foundation’s Board is made up of senior Vodafone staff and one independent director. The trustee board is responsible for the governance and financial management of the Vodafone Foundation, and ensures we deliver on our purpose and goals.
