Int- How are we funded

The Lowy Institute is an Australian non-profit organisation.  It is a public company limited by guarantee and operated exclusively for charitable purposes.

The Lowy Institute was established in 2003 with a gift from Mr Frank Lowy AC. This gift fully funded the Institute during its first years of operation. Over time the Institute has diversified its income base, although the Lowy family continues to provide the Institute with annual funding. The Institute raises the remainder of its funds from:

  • grants from prestigious Australian and international philanthropic foundations such as the John D. and Catherine T. McArthur Foundation in the United States;
  • memberships and sponsorships from private sector and government entities;
  • grants from the Australian Government and other governments;
  • subscriptions and ticket sales for events; and
  • philanthropic donations from private individuals.
