Aussie Farmers Foundation aims to partner with best practice organisations who are delivering services in country Australia, where there has been an identified need of assistance.
Aussie Farmers Foundation was formed in 2010 and since then we have given over $1.3 million in grants to rural and regional communities in need.
We strongly believe in assisting charitable organisations who are working locally to make a difference to the health, wellbeing and sustainability of communities such as addressing the lack of health services, social isolation, food insecurity, mental health problems, agricultural issues and economic challenges including businesses moving offshore or closing down.
The Foundation’s five focus areas are determined by current issues which impact rural and regional Australia:
- Economic and Environmental Sustainability for Australian farmers
- Disaster relief for farming communities including drought
- Kids health & healthy eating including food provenance awareness
- Food waste and food security
- Mental health for farming communities.
The Aussie Farmers Foundation was established by Aussie Farmers Direct as an extension of their commitment to support Aussie farmers. The Foundation is grateful to the generosity of Aussie Farmers Direct customers whose donations are critical to our ongoing ability to support Australian communities in need.
Aussie Farmers Direct guarantees 100% Australian made & grown fresh food, and is dedicated to supporting and sustaining Australian farmers. It is a unique business that puts purpose before profit, supports fair farm-gate prices, pairs old fashion values with a modern, convenient way of shopping, and works to reduce food kilometres.
Aussie Farmers Foundation (ABN 17 670 441 940) is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and an Income Tax Exempt Charity (ITEC).
