Pinnacle is passionate about enabling better lives through investment excellence. This belief is reflected through Pinnacle’s strong commitment – together with affiliated fund managers – towards partnering with the Pinnacle Charitable Foundation (Foundation) to drive positive, long term social change. Through building the capacity of excellent Australian not for profit (NFP) organisations, the Foundation is helping to deliver tangible impact within communities across six key causes – identified as critically important by employees and stakeholders of Pinnacle and Affiliates.

We are delighted that the Foundation continues to work so closely and successfully with Affiliates, to build the capacity and increase the impact of these great not-for-profit organisations.
The ongoing determination, resilience and flexibility which has been the hallmark of our partners during the longterm impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ongoing community recovery, is extraordinary. Their willingness to see the ‘silver lining’ afforded by the virus’s impact, and the immense sense of commitment and responsibility that each partner feels towards those they support – who remain vulnerable in these difficult times – is both humbling and inspiring”.
