Our purpose

To benefit LGBTQIA+ people and allied communities
in Australia by advancing equity for the most disadvantaged LGBTQIA+ Australians.

Pride Foundation Australia (PFA – formerly GALFA) is a national philanthropic foundation specifically focused on funding lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual and other (LGBTQIA+) community issues in Australia.

The Foundation actively works to increase philanthropic support for the Australian LGBTQIA+ and allied communities through fundraising, grant giving, collaboration and commissioning projects.

Pride Foundation Australia has a dedicated focus on advancing equity for the most disadvantaged LGBTQIA+ Australians, including advocating for systemic change.

Specific LGBTQIA+ Priority Areas to date have been: healthy ageing, homelessness and disability; and a new focus area on asylum seekers and refugees living in Australia is underway.


Adopting a social change model to our philanthropy we:

  • Focus more on overcoming the causes of disadvantage and inequality. 
  • Include people impacted by injustices as decision-makers. 
  • Make philanthropy more accessible and diverse. 
  • Are accountable, transparent and responsive in grant-making.
  • See donors and foundations as allies to social justice, contributing not only monetary resources but our time, knowledge, skills and access to power.
