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.

You too could be a partner and help us by registering. What do partners do? Here are just a few of the ways they 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.

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation would like to say thank you to these invaluable partners in 2018. Without you we wouldn't exist!
