Supporting education and children

Educating the future.

At Origin, we look to make change beyond just energy. In 2010 we established The Origin Energy Foundation to support programs that use education to help break the cycle of the disadvantaged. To date, the Origin Energy Foundation has provided more than $27 million to support community organisations and has helped more than 62,000 young people to achieve in education.

We focus on supporting equality of educational opportunity for Indigenous students and children in rural and remote Australia, and aim to create greater gender diversity in science, technology, engineering and maths education.

Here’s how we contribute:

  • Grant Program – Our grant program provides funding to not-for-profit organisations that use education, training and development to help young people achieve.
  • Volunteering Program – The Give Time volunteer program matches the talents of Origin people with the needs of our grant program community partners.
  • Matched giving – Through Give2, our matched giving program, we match donations from Origin employees to any registered Australian charity.
