You can help bridge the gap in by contributing to the Foundation. Donations can be made online or by cheque. All donations are tax deductible and all donors will be sent a receipt. The trustee of the Foundation will oversee the application of funds, but donors have the opportunity to request that their donations be prioritised for a specific aspect of the Foundation’s work. Priorities that might be considered include:

  • Directing funds towards any of the specific research areas already identified by Menzies or CDU;
  • Directing that funds be added to an endowment fund and used to fund future research initiatives at Menzies, CDU and/or the partners they work with to bridge the gap in Indigenous health and education in Australia
  • Creating a scholarship for high-potential Indigenous researchers at Menzies or CDU who will work to bridge the gap in health and education in Indigenous communities (potentially subject to a minimum contribution to ensure significant and sustained support)

If you wish to discuss a donation, make a donation via bank transfer or if you would like your donation to go to a specific project, please contact Colin Baillie, Head of Development: M) 0410 634 889 | Colin.Baillie@

Donors are also asked to consider transforming the lives of future Indigenous communities by leaving a bequest to the Foundation in their wills. A Foundation Bequest Form will be provided on request to Colin Baillie (see details above).

A copy of the Foundation’s DGR and ITEC certificates can be provided on request.
