NEX Charitable 


Our mission is to build stronger communities and a better tomorrow.

We are about so much more than realising the dreams of Australian families through bricks and mortar; we are committed to making a difference through our community efforts so that we can help families discover a better and brighter future.

About us.

The NEX Building Group Charitable Foundation was established in 2022 having evolved from the McDonald Jones Charitable Foundation which launched in 2012. During its nine years of operation the Foundation has provided $2.1 million to dozens charitable organisations.

As our business has grown to operate in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania we wanted the Foundation to reflect that growth. Now the NEX Building Group Charitable Foundation will continue on the good work of the original foundation providing financial support to eligible community projects and programs.

How We Help.

The NEX Building Group Charitable Foundation is a registered charity that provides support to projects across our key pillars of Youth, Research and Education across our operational footprint. Ideally the projects we support have longevity beyond our funding commitment.

Each year the Foundation provides donations via our Brands in each state to eligible community organisations in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the ACT.

Funding is distributed at a national and state level. Currently we are supporting the Smith Family nationally through our major brands of McDonald Jones Homes, Brighton Homes, MOJO Homes, Weeks Homes and Wilson Homes. We also support state-based programs. (our partners) 

The board of the NEX Building Group Charitable Foundation comprises of:

The Board meets three times a year to review projects, potential partnerships and external proposals.
