Lendlease recognises and rewards the volunteering efforts of our employees and the community through our Lendlease Foundation Community Grants program.

Lendlease Foundation partners with Bendigo Bank’s Community Enterprise Foundation™ to aid not-for profit community organisations and charities. 

In Australia, Lendlease Foundation doubled the number of grants available, with 10 grants of up to $10,000 awarded to bushfire affected communities and the organisations that support them. 

This is in addition to 10 grants of up to $10,000 for community organisations and charities, bringing this year’s total Community Grants funding up to $200,000 for twenty worthy community organisations.  
With over 100 applications received, employees voted to short-list the top ten organisations in need of funding. 

Successful applicants have been given a financial boost to address a range of community needs, including community development, diversity and inclusion, skilling, training and employment, health and wellbeing.

Meet our recipients and hear what they have to say about what the financial grant means to them.

“This generous grant from Lendlease will allow us to provide mentoring and targeted support to 30 women in Sydney impacted by homelessness, domestic violence, and social disadvantage. This grant means we can train another 30 mentors to provide one-on-one tailored support to ACCESS participants, to help remove barriers for women to engage in work, training and education opportunities.” - Carly Hussey ACCESS Project Manager WAGEC



“Sincere gratitude to the Lendlease Foundation and the synergies and partnerships that enable us to now deliver more quickly first responder and prehospital care training to bushfire affected communities and the organisations that support them. With a mission to save lives, speed recovery and serve the community, it is CareFlight’s honour to give back to our fellow Australians, particularly those who provide emergency service functions, by working alongside them with a common goal of unity and excellence to bolster future response capacities, health and wellbeing through sharing our expertise and experience in their community.” - Eliza Charlett – MediSim Manager CareFlight



“This grant will make a life changing difference for young people who are at risk of homelessness. It will support Kids Under Cover’s Scholarship Program, which keeps at-risk young people connected to education and training. These funds will provide up to 16 additional scholarships to help young people reach their full potential. We are so grateful for the support of the Lendlease Foundation and Community Enterprise Foundation.” – Jo Swift, CEO, Kids Under Cover
