KARI Foundation


KARI is an Aboriginal Charity which has been successfully operating since 1999. 

Since then, KARI has further developed our services and began delivering community programs, early intervention, cultural programs, educational support and family preservation services. These services have also expanded into other regions such as Western and Metro Sydney. We are proud to employ over 140 staff members.

KARI established the KARI Foundation during 2017, which provides an innovative approach to showcasing Aboriginal excellence, culture and community achievement by building and nurturing the connection between governments and corporates to Aboriginal Australia. 

KARI Foundation have six strategic pillars that aim to strengthen the community. This is done by:

  • Culture, which ensures that all Indigenous Australians have a strong connection to culture and identity

  • Business Enterprise & Employment, which ensures that the Foundation delivers on employment opportunities, mentorship programs as well as providing establishment of sustainable businesses

  • Sport & Healthy Lifestyle, which ensures that culturally sensitive and tailored health programs are delivered to improve the lives of Indigenous Australians as well as promote positive health messages and active lifestyles

  • Education, which ensures opportunities, materials and support are delivered to Indigenous Australians so they are able to achieve at all levels of education.

  • Families and Community, which ensures that Indigenous Australian families are delivered the programs they need to grow into strong and supported communities.

  • Arts, which ensures that Indigenous Australians are able to express themselves through Arts and become more engaged and positive role models for those around them.

  • Indigenous Excellence, which ensures that KARI Foundation is the leader in Indigenous social impact utilising best practice technology on all programs to demonstrate positive community change

KARI Foundation strives to offer a continuum of award-winning services that all begin at general community engagement with the end goal of alleviating disadvantage in Aboriginal communities, while supporting restoration and preservation in Aboriginal families.
