Annual grants

Our annual community grants program supports local community groups with grants of up to $10,000 each. 

We support projects that will bring social and environmental benefits to communities in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane near Transurban's roads. Grants are open to a wide range of organisations and initiatives, with a particular focus on projects that demonstrate inclusion, innovation and diverse thinking.

Volunteering opportunities

Need volunteers for a one-off event or for ongoing opportunities? Our teams are always looking for ways to get involved and show their support. We also give our people one paid day a year to volunteer for not for profits and causes that matter to them. Last year, our Australian and North American employees collectively donated around 1,800  hours of their time to volunteering.

Register your organisation’s opportunities so we can share these with our teams. Your community group or charity must be a listed as a not-for-profit organisation.

Our employees are located in Greater Brisbane, Greater Sydney, and Greater Melbourne, and in North America (Greater Washington DC, USA and Montreal, Canada). 

Request asset lighting

Have an important cause you’d like to see up in lights?

Submit a request for our bridge or other roads assets to be lit up to support your cause.

Our purpose is to strengthen communities through transport.

To achieve this, we partner with organisations and initiatives that contribute to this purpose in three focus areas:

Championing road safety

We partner with road safety research and advocacy organisations working on:

  • reducing deaths and injuries on all roads and for all road users
  • promoting and sharing advances in road safety research and education
  • supporting road safety education and early interventions.

Strengthening communities

We invest in initiatives and partner with organisations that contribute to:

  • generating better environmental outcomes along our roads
  • providing equitable access to STEM education and jobs
  • improving social and financial resilience.

Empowering customers

Helping customers access support in managing their toll-road use, including:

  • removing social and financial barriers to gaining driver licences
  • supporting customers experiencing vulnerability or adversity
  • providing resources to improve our roads’ accessibility.

Submitting a partnership proposal?

We look forward to hearing from you. To give your proposal the best chance possible, make sure it addresses the must-haves and criteria below. This will help us assess your proposal effectively, and, ideally, get us excited about the possible community benefits we can create through partnering with you.

  • Proposal must-haves

    To be considered for a partnership with us, your proposal must:

    • show how the opportunity will deliver benefits to both the community and Transurban
    • explain how the opportunity aligns with our key focus areas
    • tell us about your organisation and your values
    • include your views on Transurban could add value to your organisation or program
    • list all potential communication and other opportunities we’ll both have to showcase our partnership. 
  • Assessment criteria

    When assessing your partnership proposal, we’ll be having a close look at:

    • how your organisation and initiative align with our values and focus areas
    • what community benefits our involvement could deliver (beyond financial support)
    • your proposed budget
    • your performance measurement and reporting processes
    • how the partnership will create shared value for Transurban and its neighbourhood communities
    • risk factors
    • your proposal’s long-term focus and sustainability.

Types of partnerships we won’t consider

Organisations and groups that will not be considered for partnership include those that:

  • benefit of one individual or a sporting team
  • are overtly religious to the exclusion of others’ beliefs
  • may be considered to be discriminatory
  • are requests for donations
  • promote substance misuse or the mistreatment of animals
  • are not consistent with Transurban's values.
For any questions, please contact us.

Social procurement opportunities

We want to hear from social enterprises and small businesses owned by or supporting women, people with disabilities, the long-term unemployed, First Nations peoples and other under-represented groups.

If you offer products or services that align with our business needs, or you have an idea you think we’d be interested in, we’d love to hear from you.

Contact our social procurement team.

Our partnerships are important to us because, working with our partners, we can achieve more: safer roads; stronger communities; and empowered customers. The organisations we partner with get us, and we get them: we want to use our expertise and resources to create specific benefits.

As well as our major partners, NeuRA and Kidsafe, we also partner with multiple driver training programs.
