Safety, hope and opportunity for all vulnerable young Australians
Sir David Martin Foundation is a 30-year old Family Foundation, helping young people in crisis. The Foundation is the major funder of Mission Australia's Triple Care Farm, a unique, holistic treatment centre, which each year gives over 200 vulnerable young Australians aged 16-24 a safe place to get well and prepare for new opportunities.
Through philanthropy and community support, we enable best practice models of treatment for youth drug and alcohol addiction.
You can help us, help young people in crisis by becoming a ‘fundraiser for youth’. Choose from one of the fundraising options below, or better yet, create your own fundraising event/activity! It can be a lot of fun and so rewarding knowing that your efforts will make a real difference!
Have you got a birthday or special anniversary coming up? Or maybe you are looking for a special way to pay tribute to a loved one? Why not create a fundraising page to share with your family and friends and ask for a donation instead of a physical gift.
