We are Proud Pilbarans

The Pilbara is a place like no other, where rugged landscapes meet world-class innovation and endless potential. The heart and soul of the Pilbara is its people – Proud Pilbarans, each with powerful stories to share. Together, we’re helping to shape positive futures.

Creating ongoing opportunities throughout the Pilbara

The Roy Hill Community Foundation was established in 2015 as a collaborative social investment program. The Foundation brings together a diverse group of organisations, businesses and Traditional Owner groups.

Our strength as a Foundation lies in what we can achieve together, allowing us to leverage and invest in health, education and the arts in the Pilbara.

Our Foundation operates within the footprint of Roy Hill’s iron ore operations, which includes the communities of the three Traditional Owner groups: the Kariyarra, Palyku and Nyiyaparli people.

We can achieve so much more as a group of companies by combining our resources and working together.

Barry Fitzgerald, Chairman.

The Pilbara is alive with stories, culture, history and astounding natural beauty. The Roy Hill Community Foundation is intertwined with the Pilbara community, bringing together Traditional Owner groups, and various companies, business partners and suppliers to identify areas of need.

Our goal is to not simply give money away, but to bring exciting programs to life that have the potential to shape lives for the better.
