Supporting our community

Powering better journeys for all Australians

The Ampol Foundation, established in 2019, is the vehicle through which we deliver our corporate social responsibility activities. 

As a proud and independent Australian company, we are committed to being a positive contributor to communities and using our network and employee base to improve the lives of all Australians. We are also committed to delivering our company purpose, Powering better journeys, today and tomorrow.

The focus of the Ampol Foundation is guided by two pillars: youth education and safety. As Australia’s leading transport fuels provider that exists in hundreds of communities across the country, we are passionate about keeping our people and customers safe. We are also dedicated to improving access to education amongst disadvantaged youth and believe that investment in this area has a long-lasting impact on society.

To support our strategy, in 2020, we announced new partnerships with The Smith Family and Surf Life Saving Australia. These new partners complement our longstanding partnerships with the Clontarf Foundation, the Stars Foundation and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, along with our national Ampol Best All Rounder Award program.

Ampol Best All Rounder

he Ampol Best All Rounder Award is Australia’s most iconic secondary education recognition program. For 36 years it has been presented to thousands of final-year students, acknowledging their all-round contributions to their school and community. In 2021, the program returned to its original name under Ampol.
