Our impact

A sustainable commitment

We are about getting stuff done, demonstrating tangible results. That’s why we call our donations and volunteer efforts 'projects'. Established in October 2020, the GHD Foundation is another major step forward in realizing GHD’s purpose to create lasting community benefit. It has already provided critical funding to projects on 5 different continents, spanning 9 countries.
