Cormack Foundation Pty. Ltd. is an Australian investment company established for the purpose of raising funds for the Liberal Party of Australia.[1][2] The company was originally set up using proceeds from the sale of former Melbourne radio station 3XY.[3]

Australian Electoral Commission records show that in 2002-2003, the Cormack Foundation was the largest single donor to the Liberal Party, donating A$1.8 million.[4]


Critics say the Cormack Foundation Pty Limited exists as a front to hide the identities of donors to the (Conservative) Liberal Party of Australia.
