who we are

The Barlow Foundation was established in 2014. The now multi-generational family felt that they wanted to share their good fortune by helping others achieve their own personal goals.

The hope is that the work of this Foundation will give others opportunities to improve their own future to find their way out of disadvantage.

funding principles

For achieving fundamental change

The Barlow Foundation believes that improving the capacity of individuals to be able to help themselves out of disadvantage is the best way to achieve real fundamental change, not only for the individual, but for their community and for future generations.

Therefore the foundation supports organisations whose projects and programs focus on the following outcomes:

1. Systemic change

2. Self Empowerment

3. Opportunity Creation

We recognise that systemic change takes time and are interested in exploring ideas with funding recipients that have a big picture focus.

Our Focus


Our Focus


education

PRIMARY FUNDING AREA

The Barlow Foundation believes that true self-empowerment comes through knowledge and personal growth, therefore the main area of focus for the foundation is education.

Education can be formal and informal. The Foundation takes the broadest definition of education, that is: the giving and acquiring of knowledge, skills, values and habits. Self- improvement leads to self-empowerment.

GENDER 

EQUALITY & EMPOWERMENT

When women and children are given pathways out of disadvantage, systemic change is much more likely to occur, therefore the foundation has a strong preference for programs tailored specifically towards women and children.

GEOGRAPHY

ASIA & THE PACIFIC

The Barlow Foundation assists programs anywhere in Australia and throughout the Asia Pacific Region. We are interested in working in our local region so that we may be as connected as possible to our partners and their projects.
