Who We Are
First Nations Foundation (FNF) was established in early 2006 by a group of respected First Australian leaders, with the vision of enabling First Australians* to make informed decisions about their financial wellbeing, in turn securing a sound economic future for themselves and their communities.
FNF is a not-for-profit public company limited by guarantee and is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). It was established with the support and assistance of Credit Union Australia, Arnold Bloch Leibler and the ANZ Bank..
The development of a sound economic base in the First Australian community is paramount to the future of First Australian people. In order to be in a position to protect the things that they value and to sustain culture and a sense of identity, they need to build the capacity to be equal players in the mainstream economy. ‘Closing the gap’ in critical areas of financial and economic participation is also a key to improved health, employment and education outcomes, enabling First Australians to live full and productive lives – living, learning and earning.
*Note the term “First Australian” refers to the Aboriginal and or indigenous people of Australia.
