We incubate, deliver and support practical improvements to help Australia achieve a more fit-for-purpose political, policy and service delivery system.
Effective government is the crucial enabler of opportunity.
Our goal is for governments to be more transparent, accountable and inclusive. The foundation supports practical programs that deliver tangible progress and our work is motivated solely by the long-term public good. Our approach is non-partisan and is undertaken in cooperation with all sides of politics.
We want Australia to have the world’s most effective governments focused on the long-term interests of the Australian community.
We invest in long-term transformational initiatives, support bold ideas, and enlist the cooperation of Australians from across the political system.
We focus on three areas – fostering robust state institutions, developing and inspiring effective leaders, and encouraging quality policy dialogue.
We believe positive leadership is crucial in a high-functioning democracy.
We believe strong, effective and apolitical public institutions are vital assets for a thriving democracy.
We believe that good policy making is rigorous, non-ideological and implementation focused.
