Let's Create A
Lasting Legacy

The ARA Endowment Fund

Every year, we donate 100% of the interest earned by the ARA Endowment Fund to our three partner foundations. We’re on a mission to create a legacy of charitable donations that will continue for generations to come.


A Proud Partner

The ARA Endowment Fund is proud to partner with The GO Foundation, The Indigenous Literacy Foundation and The David Lynch Foundation, to support and empower youth in Australia with the tools they need to lead successful, happy lives.

Our goal is to grow the principal balance of the Endowment Fund so that we can provide substantial donations in perpetuity and make meaningful and positive change in the Australian community.

The GO Foundation

Empowering Through Education

The GO Foundation was founded in 2014 by Adam Goodes and Michael O’Loughlin. GO provides mentoring, leadership and educational opportunities to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth throughout their education: from kindergarten and school, through to university and employment. We are proud to partner with GO and build on our relationship with co-founder and Managing Director of ARA Indigenous Services, Michael O’Loughlin.

Indigenous Literacy Foundation

Reading Opens Doors

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation is a national not-for-profit charity focused on improving literacy levels for children in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Through the Book Supply, Book Buzz and Community Literacy Projects, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation provide culturally appropriate and first language books to encourage reading and writing abilities from an early age.

The David Lynch Foundation

Change Begins Within

The David Lynch Foundation was founded by American film-maker David Lynch in 2005 to make the Transcendental Meditation technique freely accessible for adults and youth. The foundation has recently established its base in Australia and will continue to assist youth at risk, victims of domestic violence and veterans to alleviate stress.
