Become a partner and help us achieve our goals

Our many generous partners, including businesses, publishers and bookstores, help us fund the thousands of new books we give to remote Indigenous communities each year and run the workshops that do so much to inspire children to get reading and writing.

Your organisation can be a partner too! Contact us for more information.

Here are just a few of the ways your organisation can help:

  • Make us the charity of your company’s choice 
  • Run fundraising events
  • Spread the word about the ILF at industry conferences and trade shows
  • Add the ILF on your website and link to ILF through social media
  • Donate a percentage of sales on Indigenous Literacy Day
  • Ask for gold coin donations at book launches and staff meetings
  • Encourage customers and book clubs to join in the Great Book Swap challenge.

Booksellers and publishers

Thanks to the many publishers who have supplied books at cost or greatly discounted rates and helped us send them out to Communities ‑ and also to the many bookstores and BookPeople who continue to give us invaluable expertise and support.

If your bookstore would like to help us, then please contact us for more information

We welcome Lendlease as our 2023 Major Supporter of Indigenous Literacy Day.
