About The ARA Fund
The ARA Group is an Australian company built on a strong ethos of social responsibility; we believe that businesses should do their utmost to support the communities in which they operate and live. The ARA Endowment Fund was established in 2009, as a way for the ARA Group and its employees to collectively give back to communities and people throughout Australia and leave a lasting positive impact on generations to come.
The ARA Endowment Fund is a sustainable source of charitable donations. Every contribution helps to grow the fund’s principal balance. Each year, the total interest generated by this balance is donated to a variety of registered Australian charities. Since the fund will never be drawn from directly, a donation to the ARA Endowment Fund is a gift that will keep giving forever.
The charities supported by the fund are nominated annually by our own employees, ensuring that every contribution goes towards a diverse range of worthy causes. The variety of charities assisted by the ARA Endowment Fund makes it a simple, affordable way to support countless communities across Australia through one direct core fund.
Since 2009, the balance of the ARA Endowment Fund has grown to over half a million dollars. However, we believe that we can do more. We encourage all employees of the ARA Group to make a tax-deductible contribution to the fund through our simple payroll deduction plan.
We are also making external appeals for donations. The ARA Endowment Fund is absolutely not-for-profit, and is an easy way to provide lasting support to charities throughout Australia. We welcome donations from our customers, suppliers, and associated businesses, and hope that together, we can create a lasting legacy of community support.
