Help Every-day Australians Make an impact

Your support makes a difference

We are a not-for-profit organisation and need generous support from the private sector, government, philanthropic organisations and our alumni.

Your generous gift will fund perpetual scholarships to develop the capacity of Australia’s future leaders.

Support High-Potential Leaders

Every year, individuals with immense leadership and impact potential apply for our Australian Rural Leadership Program. But not all fit our industry sponsors’ scholarship criteria. Your donation towards an Open Scholarship for high-potential leaders helps rural, regional and remote Australia thrive.

Support industries with limited capacity

Not all industries have the means to invest in leadership development. That doesn’t mean they don’t benefit from it. Help emerging and struggling industries gain momentum and confidence.

Support high need areas

We all need a little extra help sometimes. Support regions in Australia that need additional leadership capacity to rebuild and recover.

Making a donation

Support us with a one-off donation or regular giving – the choice is yours.

Make your donation online online using the PayPal form, set up regular giving through your employer or call us during business hours on (02) 6281 0680 to donate over the phone.

All gifts over $2.00 are deductible for taxation purposes under Section 30-25, item 2.1.1 of the Taxation Act 1997. We also welcome bequests.

Workplace giving

Nominate a regular amount of your pre-tax income to be deducted from your salary.

We will receive regular donations to help support our work and your donation summary will be recorded in your gift certificate.


After providing for your friends and family, you may consider leaving a gift in your will to the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation.
