One Light Charity Foundation

Establishing A Network Of Business Donors That Will Create A Sustainable Funding Model For Registered Causes


To create a sustainable funding platform enabling Charities with funding so that they can focus on their Causes instead of spending additional resources on raising funds.


Our vision is to unite Charities so that a more significant percentage of raised funds reach the Cause.


Proudly Australian, we believe “Charity starts at home.” Identifying and meeting needs in each local Community – City – State – Country, partnering and enabling Charities to fulfil their Causes.

We Unite Charities Serving The Same Cause

Causes We Support

One Light Charity Foundation focuses solely on Causes that combat extreme suffering in the local community.

Disaster Relief

Australia is no stranger to extreme weather – bushfire, flooding, drought and skin-peeling heat are central to its history and mythology – with significant agricultural consequences. The absence of disaster cover causes many individuals and communities severe economic and social losses.

Domestic Violence

We regard family violence as extremely serious and see the nature of violence in family relationships as insidious because it is an abuse of trust. There is often a continuing threat to the victim’s safety or their life, or the lives of their children and sometimes to extended family members.

Extreme Poverty

Australia is the second-wealthiest country in the world regarding wealth per adult, but its poverty rate has become high. It is currently the 14th highest out of 36 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries. We believe that every person is of infinite value; every person matters.


The vast majority of extreme social challenges have their cause or effect in homelessness or the fear of becoming homeless. So, in the end, it seems that it will need to be the kindness of Businesses and their philanthropic leaders coupled with passionate not-for-profit volunteers that will need to step up to solve the major social challenge of our time.


Education is a significant predictor of future employment, welfare and health prospects. It improves a person’s ability to contribute socially and economically to the community. We’ll all prosper if we have well-educated young people going on to employment.

Medical Care

Every year around 21,000 teenagers and young adults in Australia are told their parent has cancer. The need to care for their parents often disrupts these young people’s efforts for increased social, emotional and financial independence. We help to raise funds and make Grants across every area of cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
