I admit that I know very little about foundations. What I know I've learnt through reading about F.B. Heron Foundation and my dealings with Bendigo Bank's own Community Enterprise Foundation.

 "Creating shared value" however comes to mind when I read about Heron's changing business model.

Consistent with the growing recognition from business of the fundamental interdependence between the social sector and business sector, Clara Miller, CEO of Heron says: "Mission and money were never meant to be apart." as she explains in detail how Heron has combined their investment and program functions. 

For more about Heron's journey have a look at this excellent article by Clara Miller (see https://nonprofitquarterly.org/2016/06/08/building-a-foundation-for-the-21st-century-part-i-on-full-philanthropic-engagement/)
