Pride Foundation Australia is the recently adopted business name for the Gay and Lesbian Foundation of Australia – our name change was to reflect the broader LGBTIQ community we serve and the more contemporary word ‘Pride’.

Our formal company structure is one used by a number of philanthropic funds.  The Gay and Lesbian Foundation of Australia (ABN 85 116 997 427) is the trustee company for two trusts and operates with the business name Pride Foundation Australia.  The two trusts are:

  • The Trustee for GALFA – Public Fund (ABN 82 567 458 934).

This is a Charity registered for DGR Item 2, and for income tax and GST concession. Donations made to this fund are income tax deductible, and we issue receipts as evidence of this. For further information please see: . Donations we receive under DGR Item 2 are granted to organisations that are DGR Item 1, as most of our grantees are.

  • the ‘Trustee for GALFA – Charitable Fund (ABN 45 880 774 771)

This is a Charity registered for income tax exemption and GST Concession. Donations to this fund are not income tax deductible, and this suits some donors. It also provides us with greater flexibility on who we can grant to.
