About Us

Inspired by a life-changing event, MJS Foundation was established in 2020 by Matthew John Sym a 24 year old at the time on Sydney's Northern Beaches.
"I am fortunate that I can walk, talk, breathe and have the ability to live a long, healthy life, there is a lot of people in the world who wish for that everyday"
Matthew was fortunate enough to learn early on that having money and material things doesn't bring happiness, what does is giving back to those who truly need it.
Through the companies Matthew has created and the skills he has learnt. MJS Foundation has the resources to be able to make a difference in as many lives as possible.
