Thank you to our donors


To our Foundation Partners, Event Partners, Supporters and guests, thank you for attending what was a wonderfully successful inaugural event and Oration delivered by the Hon Julia Gillard.

I was honoured to bear witness to Julia’s address, as well as her passion for investing in grassroots sport. As you heard on the night, the Australian Sports Foundation – in consultation with the PMSO organising committee – has identified four key cause areas where your contributions are most needed: women & girls in sport; physical activity; diversity & inclusion, and; leadership & decision-making. On the night we released four booklets documenting in detail these key cause areas, which can now be viewed on the PMSO website.

Please be assured that your generous, tax-deductible donations will be directed towards programs which address these key cause areas, and the significant challenges we face as a nation when it comes to nurturing future generations of healthy and active children who have equitable access to the wellbeing benefits that sport provides.

Funds will be held as part of the Australian Sport Foundation’s Sport4Everyone grant program, and will be distributed in 2019 with a rigorous selection and accountability process.

If you have not already done so, I encourage you to contribute to the PMSO and the Sports Foundation for the benefit of all Australians - as I have already done so with a significant donation of $35,000.

You can make a donation here.

Thank you again for your visionary support and God bless,
