Sony Foundation Australia is a not-for-profit charitable organisation set up by Sony group companies to enrich the community in which they operate. 'Helping youth discover their true colours', the Foundation nourishes the ambitions of young Australians by fostering their talents.

This not-for-profit charitable organisation was set up by Sony group companies as part of their commitment to being good corporate citizens. The group helps cover the charity’s administration, operation and marketing costs, so that more of the money donated by Corporate Partners and the public is channelled directly at the important work the Foundation supports.

Charities and organisations that benefit include the Heart Foundation, the Salvation Army Oasis Youth Support Network, Mission Australia, the Black Swan Theatre Company, the Dennis Lillee Disabled Sports Foundation and Royal Life Saving.
