Aussie Farmers Foundation helps Australia’s rural and regional communities to thrive by supporting them during tough times. We invest in vital grassroots projects in country Australia – thanks to the generosity of the Australian community.
Aussie Farmers Foundation was formed in 2010 and since then we have given over $1.7 million in grants to communities in need.
Our focus is on five key areas affecting country Australians:
- Farm sustainability (economic and environmental)
- Disaster relief and recovery
- Kids health and healthy eating
- Hunger relief, food waste and food provenance
- Access to health services including mental health and wellbeing support.
Aussie Farmers Foundation funds projects which aim to improve the health, wellbeing and sustainability of rural and regional communities in Australia via providing grants to charities who are working with these communities.

The Aussie Farmers Foundation was established by Aussie Farmers Direct as an extension of their commitment to support Australian farmers and their communities.
Aussie Farmers Foundation (ABN 17 670 441 940) is a Public Ancillary Fund, registered with the Australian Charities & Not for Profit Commission (ACNC) and endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR Item 2) and an Income Tax Exempt Charity (ITEC).
As a Public Ancillary Fund, we are able to support rural and regional communities via our grant programs which are open to eligible charities running projects in these communities, and raise funds via donations from individuals, community organisations, schools and businesses. Donations of $2 or more made to the Aussie Farmers Foundation can be claimed as a tax deduction.
