ARA believes it has a responsibility to assist the communities where we operate. During the past 22 years of ARA Group operations, we have contributed significantly relative to the profits of the Group.
The ARA Endowment Fund was established in 2009. It is the dream of ARA to build the balance in the ARA Endowment Fund to $10 million in the future. When we achieve that dream, there will be hundreds of thousands of dollars in earnings from the ARA Endowment Fund to support charities in Australia. It will also mean the ARA Group has left an enduring and lasting legacy to the Australian community.
Each year, 100% of the annual earnings of the ARA Endowment Fund is donated to registered Australian charities. The three Foundations currently being supported by the ARA Endowment Fund are: The GO Foundation, The Indigenous Literary Foundation and The David Lynch Foundation.
Together we can create a lasting legacy.
