Your Support During the Covid-19 Pandemic


There is a role for philanthropy in this climate, and we would draw your attention to the following initiatives that you might consider supporting.

The Pinnacle Foundation Exceptional Circumstances Scholar Appeal

As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads and the economy dramatically declines, scholars are struggling to pay their rent and for food, utilities and study expenses. This will worsen over the coming weeks and months. More than ever, they need our help now.


One-off funding for organisations and groups impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak

Applications of up to $15,000 will be considered until 31 May 2020 with a total value of $75,000 available. The applying organisation must be registered as having Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status and must either currently provide services or be proposing to provide services which align with one or more of the Foundation’s goals.
