And at the heart of what we do at the TDM Foundation, is our belief that every one of us has the right to equality of opportunity. We want to remove the barriers that stand in the way of every Australian being able to reach their potential.
We support partner organisations and leaders with capital and capability over a long-term horizon. In terms of capital, our support will be tailored to what suits the situation presented to us best.
Finally, we know that big problems aren’t easily fixed. So we will find solutions over the long-term. Our strategy is not static and just as Australia evolves and changes over time, so too will our approach.
The TDM Foundation is the official charitable arm of TDM Growth Partners. Over the next ten years we aim to deploy $100 million to unlock Australia’s potential for good.
The TDM Foundation is run with consistent and congruent values to our investment philosophy. We believe and support passionate and high-performing people, in a concentrated way, who are innovative in their application of funds and can have a long-term and lasting impact on the community as they grow.
Like finding an undervalued company to invest in, we believe there are some fantastic charities and not-for-profit social enterprises that are under supported from governments and individuals alike.
The TDM Foundation also allocates the Hearts and Minds Investments (ASX:HM1) annual management fee donation to medical research.
"It’s critical for all school students in Australia to learn the skills to build software and create digital technologies. The TDM Foundation have always understood how important that is to the future of Australia and why industry needs to lean in and help schools build robust computing courses. They’ve supported us at CS in Schools not just financially, but they’ve also brought their experience, connections, and complementary skills to the table. With TDM’s long-term support, we’ll be able to continue to double the number of schools we work with every year."
"Our partnership with TDM has been immensely valuable. Their support helps us deliver an ambitious vision of educational equity in Australia; enabling us to find, train and empower exceptional people to become outstanding teachers in the classrooms that need them. Together we've been able to ensure thousands more children receive the education that gives them greater choice for their future. Challenging the status quo takes drive and passion; and we're truly grateful to TDM's longstanding commitment to be part of our movement and our community."
"The involvement of TDM in the University of Sydney Student Managed investment Fund has been an excellent addition to the students’ learning experience and a clear highlight for many of them. A real benefit of TDM’s involvement has been their ability to convey their investment approach in a clear and succinct manner, which allowed the current students to readily incorporate the techniques and approach into how they are managing the Student Managed Investment Fund. We are deeply grateful for their support."
"We are incredibly grateful for the ongoing support the TDM Foundation have given us over the last 8 years. To have a stable, long term partner to help us achieve our ambitions of continually supporting young Australians living with disability, has been incredibly invaluable."
