OneFortyOne is committed to the regions where we live and work.

By listening to our communities, we believe we can have a positive social impact and make a lasting contribution. We partner with some extraordinary organisations who share this belief, to support local people and local projects.

Pioneers Basketball

Mount Gambier Pioneers is a member club of NBL1 based in Mount Gambier, South Australia. The club fields a men’s team and a women’s team.

After the dissolution of the South East Australia Basketball League, the future looked bleak for the Mount Gambier Pioneers basketball team. Then the club was thrown a lifeline, accepted into the South Australian Premier League for the 2019 season. OneFortyOne was able to support the establishment of a women’s team by providing sponsorship that allowed them to take part in their inaugural season in the SA Premier League. As a result of a successful year in the SA Premier League the Pioneers reapplied and were successful in being accepted into the NBL1

By supporting the Pioneers we are sharing our passion for championing women’s excellence.

The partnership goes beyond basketball. In 2020 our organisations came together to raise funds for Backpacks 4 SA Kids and in 2021 we were involved with Pioneers’ annual charity event to raise funds to support mental health.

Nature Glenelg Trust

Nature Glenelg Trust is a mission-driven, not-for-profit organisation that believes in positive action, and working with the community and our partners to achieve real results on the ground.  

The Trust works on a wide range of biodiversity related projects in south-eastern Australia to benefit our environment and local communities.

OneFortyOne’s partnership with Nature Glenelg Trust began in 2013, when we helped to fund the purchase of Mt Burr Swamp Habitat Restoration Reserve. Since then, we have worked with Nature Glenelg Trust restoring habitat and biodiversity within 2,700 hectares of protected wetlands, caves and remnant vegetation.

The Nature Glenelg Trust Foundation was established in April 2018, thanks to the first of three initial $20,000 annual contributions made by OneFortyOne, building on an existing, highly successful long-term relationship between our organisations. The partnership is ongoing and in 2020 focussed on the creation of habitats at Mt Burr Swamp to attract native wildlife and expand the on site cultural learning centre.

Stand Like Stone

Stand Like Stone Foundation was established in 2004 to create a community fund that would benefit the South Australian Limestone Coast region in perpetuity.

The Foundation provides a vehicle for those that care about the region to give something of real value back to the community. Through its ann

ual grants and scholarships, Stand Like Stone is able to quickly adapt and react to the community’s needs, from individuals and families, through to not-for-profit groups and corporations.

OneFortyOne’s six year partnership with Stand Like Stone has improved the lives of thousands of residents of the Limestone Coast, and our whole team is proud to be involved.

In 2021 we funded five projects through the Stand Like Stone Foundation. Through the application process OneFortyOne sponsored a further five projects, from upgrading tools at Men’s Sheds to regulation and mindfulness training empowering local educators.


The LifeChanger Foundation identifies and develops inspiring mentors within communities and delivers holistic self-development workshops for teens, creating and sustaining safe and resilient communities. LifeChanger and OneFortyOne have come together to support the wellbeing of teenagers living in Mount Gambier, South Australia.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
