Inspiring philanthropy to build strong communities

What is the Be BlueRock Foundation?

BlueRock established the Be BlueRock Foundation to give individuals and organisations a simple, cost-effective and tax-effective way to establish their own sub-fund with the support of a broader foundation, so they can distribute funds to charities of their choice over time. It’s another way we can give back to our communities.
The Be BlueRock Foundation is a Public Ancillary Fund, which is a type of charitable trust in which an individual, family, organisation or company can establish a fund to put aside money for long-term charitable purposes. It allows people to enjoy the benefits of a public foundation without the responsibilities of being a trustee.
BlueRock is responsible for the administrative, investment, legal, taxation, audit, reporting and compliance requirements of being a trustee which leaves you, our client, free to think about the charities and causes you’d like to support.

Why Did We Create the Be BlueRock Foundation?

The Be BlueRock Foundation creates another opportunity for us to give back to our community. 
The BeBlueRock Foundation allows our clients and staff to engage in meaningful conversations about how we can give back and strengthen our communities, protect our environment and help those in need.
The philanthropic endeavours of our professional services peers often starts with a commercial focus. BlueRock aims to disrupt this business model by maintaining a focus on impact as our core and primary objective.
Importantly, the Public Ancillary Fund structure creates the opportunity for our clients to engage with a much smaller financial commitment, therefore broadening the scope to connect, educate and impact a much wider audience.
Setting up a fund with the Be BlueRock Foundation means there are no time-consuming establishment processes or delays associated with gaining ATO approval.
