Our Philanthropic Partners:

Gandel Philanthropy

Gandel Philanthropy is one of Australia's largest independent family philanthropic funds. It has been the vehicle for charitable giving by the extended Gandel Family since its formation as the Gandel Charitable Trust in 1978.

Thanks to a Gandel community grant, Big Brothers Big Sisters was able to continue the expansion of the Big Futures  program into Regional Victoria, allowing even more young people access to Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs.

Philip and Vivian Brass Foundation

Philip Brass is the Patron, steering comittee member, benefactor, and founding partner of Big Brothers Big Sisters' Young Achievers Program. By recognising that young people may not have the tools, networks and support they need to gain a career in their area of interest, the Young Achievers Program aims to give young people the opportunities and advice they need to attain their career goals. Through Philip's vision, support, and enthusiasm, over 150 young people have been paired with a mentor working in their area of interest, inspired to achieve in careers as diverse as engineers to fashion designers, lawyers, musicians and pilots.
