Supporting our community
Crescent Wealth is a passionate believer in the idea of prospering collectively.
As one of Australia’s leading Shariah-compliant superannuation funds, we focus on Islamic investing and delivering strong returns for our members. But as a company, our ethos runs much deeper.
For over 10 years we have been passionate about bringing positive change to the Australian community through supporting our not-for-profit sister initiatives, Crescent Foundation and Crescent Institute and their programs.
We believe in a culture of giving and changing lives, where prosperity is shared rather than earnt, where the community is celebrated and supported and where initiatives and programs to assist those less fortunate are developed and fostered.
At Crescent Wealth, we believe we can make the greatest impact when we come together and generate solutions to our shared problems, underpinned by our Islamic faith and by proudly living our values in everything we do.

At the heart of everything the Crescent Foundation does is the passion and drive to create meaningful change in the lives of every recipient we cross and our donors.
We will work tirelessly on leaving a positive footprint extending from our local communities to broader Australia. Our vision is to create a culture of giving by encouraging ongoing financial support to those in our community who need it the most.
Ultimately, together with our charities, organisation and corporate partners, we promise to work towards building a culture of giving with ongoing financial and moral support leading to a positive, strong, and inclusive Australia.
Our major passions include:
- Refugee educational & employment support;
- Helping the homeless;
- Conservation of Islamic art & culture; and
- Civics, democracy and youth.
With the increasing rate of refugees resettling in Australia, we are proud to help with their education and upskilling.
Thousands of refugees arrive in Australia each year seeking asylum and a better life. Of the many challenges they face in a new land, the affordability of university education is one of the most pressing.
Most of these refugees are educated in their country and need Australian education to complement their existing knowledge and bring them on par with the local workforce.
The Crescent Foundation wants to lend a helping hand in assisting in educating and facilitating their settlement into the workforce and Australia generally.

The Crescent Institute was founded officially in 2006 and is a not-for-profit organisation pursuing a more well-connected, thoughtful and inclusive Australia.
The Institute was founded to address a need for more meaningful access to professional networking and thought leaders.
