We encourage and support organisations that are capable of responding to social and ecological opportunities and challenges.


The Foundation pays homage to the late Ian and Shirley Norman, who worked tirelessly to successfully establish the retail business of Norman Ross followed by Harvey Norman. The family is very proud of their parents’ work and charitable giving and now, with the generous support of the three Norman children, Karen, Tracy, and Glen, the Foundation has been set up to continue their parents’ substantial philanthropic efforts.

The Ian & Shirley Norman Foundation will provide support to projects that focus on:

  • Pillar 1 – Being Ecologically Sound
  • Pillar 2 – Protecting People from Harm
  • Pillar 3 – Walking Together with Traditional Custodians
  • Pillar 4 – Empowering Communities

We are proud to be partnering with the following organisations and look forward to working together to help them make a difference.
