OUR STRATEGY

Strong partnerships enable the WHITE SHADOW FOUNDATION to plan into the future. We take the guess-work away from our valued donors, by constantly researching worthwhile organisations to partner with, then carry out stringent due diligence prior to the allocation of funding grants. For individual applicants we perform private conflict checks within an empathetic framework. This scope of work is continuously happening behind the scenes, as we drill down on where we can provide the most social impact and benevolent relief. Our goals set an ambitious growth agenda to inspire elevated philanthropy practices.

We launch our new strategic plan into a radically changed world to the one of just a few years ago. Following the impact of the Black Summer fires in 2019-2020 and the global COVID-19 pandemic, we now find ourselves in a social, economic and environmental landscape experiencing tectonic shifts. Life is increasingly uncertain. In these challenging times, the role of our enlightened philanthropy partners is more important than ever before. We cannot do this without you. Collective giving is supremely more powerful than any individual effort. 

BUILDING A STRONG LEGACY THAT THE NEXT GENERATION WILL BE PROUD OF

OUR SOCIAL ISSUE DOCUMENTARY SLATE

We believe that stories can and do have massive social impact. Documentary storytelling, in particular, has proven to provide hope and healing for millions of people, as they immerse themselves in the lives of others. Often times, 90 minutes of screen-escapism can assist in course-correcting an individual's life, changing its trajectory in a positive way. For this reason, we commission social issue documentary projects, retaining ownership, and strategically screen the produced films in large theatres around Australia - raising further awareness.

ELEVATING THE MOST AT-RISK AND VULNERABLE 

Filmmaking is a collaborative effort where art meets commerce. None of this could be achieved without our philanthropic partners and private donors. Generous contributions support the impact our documentaries make on a global scale with worldwide distribution. The projects that we develop and co-produce play a powerful role in exposing inequality and highlight the complex situations faced by disadvantaged people, and communities. When all is said and done, our work promotes education, social justice, and compassion. Aside from the physical film production stages, each donation helps us connect with supremely talented storytellers, educators, influential policy-makers and local community groups - further enriching the purpose of the WHITE SHADOW FOUNDATION.
