Helping rewrite the future

We support projects that have a genuine capacity to create social opportunity and make the future better for people facing disadvantage, marginalisation or isolation across regional NSW. We are humbled by the profound impact that just one grant can have on the life of an individual who has benefited from a project we have funded. It is amazing to think how many futures have been helped to be rewritten since 2003.

Here for generations to come

In 2003 Newcastle Permanent Building Society created Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation. This gift, in the form of a $30 million endowment over time, is to never be returned to the Building Society. Instead, these funds have been invested and the interest earned each year, is presented as grants to our local communities.

Our funding model is different to many other foundations. We’re an independent organisation with self-sustaining income which we use to provide as grants to our local communities. Now. And for generations to come.
