The Great Book Swap is a fantastic way to celebrate reading locally, and raise much-needed funds for remote communities. The idea is to swap a favourite book in exchange for another, for a gold coin or note donation. Register your school or workplace. More information about the Great Book Swap.
Nominate the ILF on your charity list for workplace giving and give small, regular donations from your pre-tax pay. Contact us for more information.
Participate in marathons, races and charity drives. Organise a morning tea with friends, a dinner party, bake sale or bookclub. Donate a percentage of your product sales. Simply register on Everyday Hero or Go Fundraise — they make it easy to share your event with friends and family by email, Twitter or Facebook, and give you a personal page where donations can be made. The money raised is directed on to our Foundation.
If the Everyday Hero or Go Fundraise platforms don’t suit your fundraiser, but you would still like to use the ILF name or logo to promote your activity, please complete this form.
Through activities on the day, we focus our attention on the disadvantages experienced in remote communities and encourage the rest of Australia to raise funds and advocate for more equal access to literacy resources for remote communities. More information about how you can participate on Indigenous Literacy Day.
Let everyone know about the activity or event you're planning. Email us the details and we can help you promote it on our social media pages and website.
During or after your event, share your photos from your fundraiser on social media and tag @IndigenousLiteracyFoundation on Facebook and @IndigneousLF on Twitter and Instagram, so we can share these too.
