Vodafone Foundation helps enable charities to harness the power of mobile technology to create a healthier Australia.

We call it ‘power for good’.

For the next three years, we’ll support leading heart and diabetes institute – Baker IDI – in increasing awareness of the health risks linked to prolonged sitting, and to launch a new Smartphone app that gives Aussies a tool to reduce their sitting time and improve their health.

And we’ll support Hello Sunday Morning's movement towards a better drinking culture, by helping to fund creation of a new app that empowers Australians to improve their relationship with alcohol.

App Aid will support not for profits to create Smartphone apps, continuing our track record of helping charities such as beyondblue and St John Ambulance launch life saving apps.

Our long-standing World of Difference program supports Australians to leave their day jobs to take a year of Paid Charity Leave to help a charity they’re passionate about.

Vodafone Foundation was established in 2002 and has donated more than $21 million to charities. It is also one of 28 Vodafone Foundation’s around the world using mobile technology to make social change and improve people’s lives.

Vodafone Staff

Vodafone Staff

All hands on deck.

Vodafone Foundation empowers Vodafone staff to support our charity partners and charities they’re personally passionate about, through volunteering, matching staff fundraising and workplace giving.

In 2013/14 Vodafone staff ran, walked, baked, grew mo’s, wore PJs and more in the name of supporting charity, with the Vodafone Foundation matching over $200,000 in staff fundraising.

Three years to create big change.

In 2014, Vodafone Foundation made a three-year commitment to its programs. To make the biggest possible difference to our programs and charity partners, we won’t be taking on any other applications for funding or in-kind support in 2014/15.

Vodafone Foundation Board

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.
