Supporting real change in the community
The John and Myriam Wylie Foundation provides financial and non-financial support for worthy and well-run organisations in all walks of life, especially in education, youth and social inclusion, the indigenous community, sport and well-being, and selected community interests. We have to date supported over 100 organisations and causes. We aim to make an impact, not a statement, and seek to assist deserving organisations in meaningful ways over and above pure financial support.
“We aim to
make an impact,
not a statement.”
- To invest in well-run organisations and social enterprises which can make a real difference to worthy causes; and
- To reinvest in the communities which have benefited both John and Myriam and their family and the external directors of the JAMWF.
We invest in organisations with a clear culture of mission, outcomes, cost-effectiveness and transparency, in areas where there is a real need. We like organisations that consider us financial partners and investors, rather than passive donors.
