Indigenous charities to support this Close The Gap Day

There are many Aboriginal charities you can choose to support this National Close the Gap Day. At Good2Give we recognise that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples still do not have equal opportunity to access services that others take for granted, such as;

  • Education
  • Health Care
  • Legal services
  • Health and life expectancy

We’ve made it easy for you to help close this gap for Indigenous Australians by highlighting a few out of the many incredible Indigenous charities to donate to that we have on our platform.
