Addax and Oryx Foundation

The Addax and Oryx Foundation aims to fund focused, high-impact projects with a clear beginning, end and exit strategy, run by small organisations that have little or no access to large funders. The Foundation gives preference to concrete projects that cover more than one of our key areas of focus: health, education, community development, with environmental stewardship cutting across all activities, in the knowledge that they are all crucial to the journey out of extreme poverty.

Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research

As world leaders in agricultural research, Australian scientists are encouraged and supported to use their skills for the benefit of partner countries while at the same time contributing to solutions to meet Australia’s own agricultural challenges.

The diversity of our own agriculture sector, which extends from the tropics to the arid zone, continues to thrive while operating in highly variable and challenging climates with minimal external subsidies. This suggests the Australian agriculture sector has valuable knowledge and expertise to share with other countries facing similar challenges, including farmers, rural poor, consumers, researchers and policymakers.

ACIAR supports research projects in four regions—eastern and southern Africa, East and South-​east Asia, the Pacific and South Asia. Our research projects focus on agribusiness, climate change, crops, fisheries, forestry, horticulture, livestock systems, social systems, soil and land management and water. They deliver specific development outcomes.

To date, ACIAR has commissioned and managed more than 1,500 research projects in 36 countries, partnering with 150 institutions along with more than 50 Australian research organisations.

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation

The problems we seek to solve are complex, requiring long-term commitment to create lasting change. We select our partners thoughtfully, consistently evaluate our progress, and adjust strategies when needed. Our resources are small compared to these challenges, so we are unable to fund all requests we receive. In a typical year, about 15 percent of our grants are awarded to first-time grantees and less than one percent come from unsolicited proposals. Grants are made only for charitable, educational, or scientific purposes, primarily from tax-exempt charitable organizations.

Lalor Foundation

The Lalor Foundation was incorporated in Delaware in 1935 under bequests from members of the Lalor family. One of the foundation’s major objectives has been to give assistance and encouragement to capable investigators embarking on teaching and research careers in universities and colleges. The program’s mission is to support these researchers early in their work so they can become independently funded in the field of mammalian reproductive biology as related to the regulation of fertility.
