About Us

The Neilson Foundation was established in 2007 to support both the arts, and charities that work towards social cohesion.

The Foundation has distributed over $98.7 million dollars to such causes since its inception. 

We favour innovative initiatives in two key areas.

The first, improves accessibility to the arts with the aim of enriching the cultural landscape of Sydney and Australia.

The second, assists organisations which support individuals facing extreme disadvantage. The Foundation values programs that offer support to vulnerable youth, migrant populations, and individuals facing domestic violence and mental health issues.
