The diversity of the organisations that have been supported by the Forrest family since 2001 is impressive.
The donations - made through the family's Minderoo Foundation - total $274.4 million and include community groups, educational institutions, sports club and arts associations.
They include the Alannah & Madeline Foundation and the Daniel Morcombe Foundation - organisations established in memory of slain children to protect other children from violence.
The foundation has also funded the alcohol and drug treatment organisation Cyrenian House and the Fresh Start Recovery Program, an evangelical rehabilitation centre promoting "rapid detoxification" therapy for heroin addiction.
It donated to the 2009 Victorian bushfire and 2011 Queensland flood recovery projects.
Several schools have received funding, including St Mary's College in Broome, St Hilda's Anglican School for Girls, Serpentine-Jarrahdale Grammar School, Kennedy Baptist College and Hale School.
Initially, funding was distributed as grants. But in recent years the foundation has concentrated on specific projects, including GenerationOne - a movement to end indigenous disparity through employment.
Another new focus is the Walk Free Foundation, a global organisation aiming to end modern slavery.Andrew and Nicola Forrest are flying to London this week for the inaugural release of the foundation's Global Slavery Index.
