Join Our Team

Australian Communities Foundation is an independent, charitable foundation working with hundreds of everyday philanthropists to address social issues and create positive, community-led change.

We connect those who can give with those driving positive change. We are currently home to more than 400 sub-funds, led by families, individuals, groups and organisations from across Australia. Founded in 1997, we have since grown into one of Australia’s largest community foundations with a unique national focus. Each year, we disburse more than 1,000 grants totalling more than $13 million.

At ACF, we foster a supportive, collaborative, and flexible team environment. When you join our team, you will have the opportunity to be involved in projects that make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. We are an organisation built on strong values: inclusion, agency, courage and fairness. We believe in a fairer Australia – one where social, environmental and cultural justice is the norm, and you should, too.

ACF is proud to be an inclusive and equal opportunity workplace. We support flexible work arrangements, and encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people identifying as LGBTQIA+, people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and people with lived experience of disability.
