Making an Impact
Our Areas of Focus
The foundation's areas of focus mirror HDR's breadth of knowledge and experience. We provide grants for projects that demonstrate direct impact as well as projects that can be replicated or scaled. Our areas of focus included:
Our company, clients and communities benefit from a well-educated, skilled and informed population. We believe education is perhaps the most powerful tool for reducing poverty, improving health and advancing prosperity. We fund educational grants addressing education from prep through to university.
With a globally recognised healthcare design practice, we value the importance of healthcare and healthy communities. Promoting healthy living at the community level brings the greatest health benefits to the greatest number of people. We fund grants that address active lifestyles, wellness education and preventative healthcare.
We promote the value of environmentally responsible practices to our clients, employees and communities. We are all responsible for the use, stewardship and protection of our natural environment. We support grants that address restoration, renewal, conservation and sustainable best practices of our global resources.
