The Aboriginal Benefits Foundation was established in 2004 by a group of committed individuals involved in Indigenous art and culture. The Aboriginal Benefits Foundation Limited is a not-for-profit company and the trustee for the Public Ancillary fund, the Aboriginal Benefits Foundation Trust.
The objectives of the Aboriginal Benefits Foundation are to promote, provide and carry out activities, facilities and projects for the benefit, welfare and well-being of Aboriginal communities throughout Australia. It has a particular focus on supporting health and education projects with a connection to Aboriginal art and/or artists, which are undertaken to assist the youth, the aged and those who suffer from infirmity, disability, poverty or other disadvantageous social or economic circumstances.
The Aboriginal Benefits Foundation has held a number of fundraising events to support Aboriginal programmes in communities throughout Australia.
