We are committed to improving Australian lives and giving back to the communities we live, work and play in.

About us

The Shine a Light Foundation was established by Shine in 2010 to create a philanthropic initiative that employees, suppliers and clients could contribute to in order to help make the world a better place.
The Shine a Light Foundation is dedicated to supporting charitable organisations that have developed innovative and meaningful ways of making life better for people, particularly those that haven't received a lot of exposure or support yet. When selecting our charity partners each year, we focus on charitable organisations that promote prevention, rehabilitation, education and safety programs for people impacted by injury, injustice and adversity.
Our people regularly champion the rights of disadvantaged Australians and fight for justice on their behalf, and we've been doing pro bono litigation in our local communities for over 45 years. The Shine a Light Foundation is just another way we demonstrate our commitment to improving Australian lives and give back to the communities we live, work and play in.
Shine Justice provides legal and loss resolution services across Australia and New Zealand and includes the following companies:

Our charity partners

Our current charity partner

This year the Shine a Light Foundation is supporting Eat Up, Australia’s only organisation providing free lunches for students on a national basis. Their mission is to feed hungry kids so that they can grow, learn and succeed. Each week, with the help of their partners and dedicated volunteers, Eat Up delivers thousands of fresh sandwiches and donated snacks directly to schools for the 1 in 5 Aussie kids who experience hunger.

Who we support

The Indigenous Literacy Logo
In 2021, we supported The Indigenous Literacy Foundation which works in over 400 remote communities and assists First Nations People to access education and other opportunities, helping to close the literacy gap. They aim to make a difference by gifting thousands of new, culturally appropriate books with a focus on early literacy and first language and also by running programs to inspire communities to tell and publish their own stories.
The Pyjama Foundation Logo
In 2020, we supported The Red Rose Foundation who actively works to end domestic and family violence related deaths in Australia including homicide, suicide and accidental deaths that arise from incidents and/or histories of domestic violence. They raise awareness through education, research, training and advocacy to 'change the ending'.
The Pyjama Foundation Logo
In 2019, we supported The Pyjama Foundation, an organisation who give children in foster care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills and confidence. Through their flagship “Love of Learning” program, volunteers called 'Pyjama Angels' are recruited, screened, trained and then matched with a child in care and spend time with them once a week, focusing on learning-based activities.
Dollys Dream Logo
In 2018, we partnered with Dolly's Dream, in memory of bullying victim Dolly Everett who tragically ended her young life at 14 years of age. Our donation helped the Everett family to better understand the prevalence of bullying in schools and develop resources, and support services to assist other parents and families.
Minddog Logo
In 2017 and 2018 we supported mindDog Australia, a not-for-profit organisation that assists mental health sufferers to procure, train and certify an assistance dog. Having a mindDog by their side gives those with a mental illness the confidence to travel on public transport, access public places and take part in social activities.
Secondbite Logo
In 2016, the Shine a Light Foundation made a community grant to SecondBite, an organisation that redistributes surplus fresh food to community food programs around Australia. Our donation provided 10,000 individual meals to people who need it most – the homeless, women and families in crisis, youth at risk, indigenous communities, asylum seekers and more.
Hear for You Logo
In 2015, we supported Hear for You, a not-for-profit organisation that supports deaf and hard of hearing teenagers at a critical time in their social development and education. Our support helped to fund a series of intensive mentoring workshops, e-mentoring and community programs in Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales and Western Australia
Starlight Logo
The first recipient of our annual community grant was the Starlight Children's Foundation in 2014, a donation which helped them in their mission to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families.
