The Endeavour Foundation is a non-for-profit organisation. It supports more than 3,300 people with a disability in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia.
Founded in 1951
The charity began in 1951. A group of parents were determined to provide their children with the same opportunities as their peers, despite their disabilities. Approximately 40% of their funding is raised through community generosity. Some funding is also provided by the government.
You can help support this amazing cause by donating, fundraising, volunteering, or buying a ticket in the Endeavour Foundation Lottery. All proceeds from the Endeavour Foundation Lottery support their At Home With Choices program, funding modern accessible homes that allows people with a disability to have more choice in their living arrangements. Your generosity gives people the opportunity to develop independence and practical life skills, and the chance to experience living in a share house situation.
