The Highway One Trust is an independent grant-making charitable trust founded in 2016. We fund a wide range of organisations and charities working to support positive change in a variety of areas.
Why Highway One Trust?
Highway One is the largest and longest network of roads in the world, circumnavigating the entire Australian continent.
The aim of Highway One is to support those who are following long roads and difficult paths towards long term and lasting change. It could support initiatives that are simple and practical but generally this isn’t about quick relief or “in/out” interventions or activities that may get lots of media attention.
There is a long list of objects but that does not mean we will be putting funding towards all of them at any given time. We are just at the start and will be focussing on one or two objects at any given time.
- Disfiguring medical conditions
- Women in need
- Prison and Injustice
- Poverty, economic regeneration and homelessness
- Internet and mobile networks
The policy of Highway One is for the trustees and supporting staff and researchers to identify potential recipient organisations rather than receive applications.
Charities may choose to email in or send information about their charities to create awareness but we cannot commit to responding.
