Funders of Indigenous Causes in Free Online Guide
Thursday, 24th March 2016 at 11:23 am

Fundraising consultancy to the Not for Profit sector AskRIGHT has launched a series of free online guides for indigenous organisations seeking to fundraise.

AskRIGHT has compiled a list of all Australian and international companies, trusts and foundations known to direct funds towards causes that benefit Indigenous Australians. These printed booklets have been revised and updated to reach a wider audience online.

“Earlier editions of our Guide were much appreciated and we are very excited to make it available to a larger number of Indigenous organisations all over Australia via our website”, Dr Daniel McDiarmid, AskRIGHT Principal Consultant and Director, said.

Compiling the list provided AskRIGHT with some insights into the business philosophies on giving.

Because the research showed little change in names on the list and a continued commitment to “closing the gap” for indigenous communities, it allowed for some analysis of trends.

AskRIGHT said there had been a significant decline in the number of funders which make an open invitation for unsolicited proposals.

“Instead, there is a noticeable effort by funders to seek out the opportunities which appeal to their giving philosophy. This especially suits companies, as they are able to target their funding geographically or to a particular field which provides synergy with their business.

“We now see funders supporting more than one indigenous organisation with multi-year funding arrangements focussed on medium to long-term goals.

“But with the formation of such partnerships and the closing of open invitations for proposals, it will be harder for smaller organisations to get a foot in the door.”

AskRIGHT said the information demonstrated a commitment to Reconciliation.
