Our mission at The Shane Warne Foundation is to raise funds to help “enrich the lives of seriously ill and underprivileged children and teenagers in Australia”.
As an Umbrella organisation, The Shane Warne Foundation achieves this by supporting a diverse cross section of charities that work ‘hands on’ and so effectively handle the day to day needs of these brave children.
Since 2004, we have raised over $5 million dollars with approximately 80% reaching those in need. During the 2009/10 financial year, we were able to distribute over $530,000, to 28 separate charities.
We are proud to say we have now made over 100 distributions to more than 70 separate charities.
We accept submissions each year from charities in dire need facilities, services and the myriad of other requirements that are a constant need for the care of seriously ill and underprivileged children – the list is endless. Our board selects the beneficiaries annually, making a collective decision based on how the funds we have available can best be utilised to make an explicit difference.
Over the past six years we have raised the majority of our funds through our own events and great partnerships with entities such as Channel Nine, 888, BGC, DWS, SEL, Parragon Publishing and Gillette.
We manage two distinct funds which allow us the flexibility to help charities and individuals. These are;
- The Public Fund
- Provides funding for established charities that work hands on with seriously ill and underprivileged children and teenagers in Australia.
- The Necessitous Circumstances Fund
- Allows us the capacity to directly help children under 18 years of age who are in financially necessitous circumstances.
We know we can do more and we know we have built a structure that can benefit others that want to help the same demographic that we do.
