National History Challenge
The Menzies Foundation sponsor a category of the National History Challenge to encourage school students to investigate the legacy of Australia’s longest serving Prime Minister, Sir Robert Menzies.
The historic site in Jeparit, Menzies Square, that honours Australia's longest serving Prime Minister, Sir Robert Menzies, will undergo an extension and redevelopment shortly.
In 2014 the Menzies Foundation committed $35,000 to the redevelopment of Menzies Square in Jeparit, the birth place of Sir Robert. The Victorian State Government then announced the funding of $165,000 for the redevelopment of Menzies Square late in October 2014. Additional funding of $10,000 from Federation University and $10,000 from Hindmarsh Shire Council will also support the project. Federation University and Hindmarsh Shire Council will also be contributing $15,000 of in-kind support.

Sir Robert Menzies Oration on Higher Education
The Menzies Oration on Higher Education at the University of Melbourne honours the late Sir Robert Menzies, former Prime Minister of Australia. Sir Robert considered that his contribution to the development of universities might prove to be amongst the most lasting of his achievements for Australia. In recognition of this vision and in order to strengthen the role of higher education in Australia, the Menzies Foundation established in 1991 the Sir Robert Menzies Oration on Higher Education.
Prime Minister's XI Cricket
Sir Robert Menzies had an abiding passion for cricket and cricket is therefore a natural item in any Menzies remembrance program. The Menzies Foundation has therefore been involved in various cricket activities since its inception in 1979.
The Menzies Foundation hosted workshops to improve health.
