Annual Reports and Resources

Annual Reports

Our annual report provides a record of the Foundation’s activities and its financial statements, as well as the independent auditor’s report.

The report also recognises the work of our Board of Directors, provides an update from our Chair and includes a report from the role of the Finance and Audit Committee Chair.

Our annual reports are available on the Foundation website in digital format only. Older copies from prior years are available for viewing from the Foundation’s own on-site archives.

While this corporate document is primarily of interest to our stakeholders, anyone may ask to view a report from any given year.


Regional Australia – 2025 and Beyond

In mid-2015, we engaged with program graduates in describing the current issues for rural, regional and remote Australia, and to present some possible actions. This project was instigated by Cathy McGowan and Anne Dunn, who are both Fellows of the Foundation.

While the Foundation holds no policy position of its own, it agreed to host this project to provide a chance for graduates to test ideas and build consensus around the major issues affecting regional Australia, with the aim of improving policy and strategy.

The below documents were produced as an outcome of the project:
