The Nadia and Alf Taylor foundation (previously tna foundation) was established in 2002 off the back of the commercial success of tna solutions pty ltd. Our founders, Nadia and Alf Taylor have a strong belief in social justice and decided to share their success with those who are less fortunate.
What began as personal philanthropy by Nadia and Alf has evolved into a foundation that has supported 150+ charities across 39 countries and has directly impacted the lives of over 19,000 people. Our partner organisations work on a range of different interventions in the areas of education, social enterprise, healthcare, human rights, emergency relief and animal rights to name a few.
We pride ourselves on partnering with organisations that are professional, forward-thinking and intentional about the work they are carrying out around the world
