TAL Community Foundation

Supporting initiatives to make a meaningful contribution to the Australian community.

Through a coordinated approach of initiatives, the Foundation has created a space for giving, interacting, sharing and connecting with each other and the community with the aim of making meaningful impact on social and community issues and support employee involvement in the community.

Our partnerships are an opportunity for our people to work together with our communities to develop their own sense of purpose, grow and develop their capabilities and importantly build meaningful contribution to communities.

Supporting our people's passions

We support our people’s involvement in the community with a range of different programs, enabling them to make a positive difference.

Staff fundraising matching program

TAL matches funds raised for community causes that our people are passionate about, helping them make double the difference for their chosen charity or community group.

TAL community leave

We are committed to empowering our people to champion community causes. To facilitate this, we offer a day of paid volunteering each year to help the community.

Our four community partners

The TAL Community Foundation partners with community organisations to enable them to make a valued difference in their communities.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service

The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (RFDS) is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world. 

As a National Community Partner, our partnership enables us to help Australians access life-improving medical services and expertise, as well as educate people in rural and regional Australia about health. 

In 2018 and 2019, our people raised funds for 127 defibrillators to be distributed among RFDS administered medical chests across rural and regional Australia.

National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy

The National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy (NASCA) provides holistic support to young aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, supporting them on their educational pathway to a self-determined future.

They utilise the power of structured sporting, education, and cultural programs in partnership with urban and remote schools to enhance learning experiences to improve the educational and wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal youth. 

Our partnership provides a range of skill-based volunteering opportunities for our people to share their expertise and skills to help to make a difference for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

The Australian Business and Community Network

We help empower young Australians make sound personal, educational and vocational choices through mentoring support.

The Australian Business and Community Network (ABCN) partners with schools with businesses to provide programs where our people can support young Australians reach their potential in the future world of work, regardless of socio-economic background. 

Over the last seven years, 669 of our people donated 5,050 hours to mentor 1,469 students. And, together with our financial advisor partners, we raised $833,000 for the ABCN from fees charged for our Risk Academy Masterclasses.


As one of the main reasons for TAL’s customer claims, we are focused on leading the way in identifying, preventing and treating mental health conditions.

We are proud to partner with Orygen who are world leaders in research, policy, education and innovations in care for young people in support of their mental health.

Through our partnership we aim to support Orygen in their work around prevention, advocacy and education to support young people and their families. Through a national fundraiser, our people raised $70,000 in 2019 to develop Orygen’s headspace centre in Sunshine Victoria.
