About Us

Founded by Brett and Annie Fogarty in 2000, the Fogarty Foundation was established to directly benefit individuals and the community through encouraging endeavours of excellence in education, leadership, the community and in life.

Almost fourteen years on, the Foundation’s mission is ‘to deliver education opportunities that support people to achieve their potential and inspire community leadership’.

Education in its many forms is the Foundation’s main focus, from playgroups in disadvantaged communities to merit scholarships at the University of Western Australia. We feel that this is the most effective avenue for providing opportunity for individuals and the community.

The Foundation strongly believes that the knowledge, tangible outcomes and impacts gained through the projects they fund, should be passed on to as many people as possible, in what the Foundation likes to call "the ripple effect".
