A new approach to corporate philanthropy

In Atlassian’s early days, founders Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar built giving back into the business, with a belief that education and business have the power to change the world.

They pledged 1% of the company's equity, profit, employee time and products to social good - and the Atlassian Foundation was born.

We're passionate about helping social impact teams do more and dream bigger. We partner with some of the world’s most impactful education changemakers and we co-founded the Pledge 1% movement.

The Foundation is a special part of the Atlassian experience. We empower our employees to use their talent, time and tools to be the change they seek in the world.
