The Peter and Lyndy White Foundation is a Melbourne based philanthropic Foundation.

Our prime mission is to enhance the quality of life of Victoria’s disadvantaged and vulnerable community members, in particular, the homeless, supporting them in making positive long-term changes in their lives.

What We Support

The Foundation aims to support organisations whose
work benefits:
• Homeless and disadvantaged
• Youth, Family and Aged Care
• Community and Social Welfare

Apply for a Grant

For the foreseeable future the Foundation has decided to focus on reducing homelessness and the provision of low-income housing, as we believe all Australians should have access to affordable, safe and sustainable housing.
