Opening the Doors Foundation

About Us

The Opening the Doors Foundation is an Indigenous Education Foundation that has grown out of an Indigenous community organisation in response to a long expressed community need.

The philosophy of the Foundation is to ensure that Indigenous parents / families are empowered and financially supported to enable them to make choices for an independent education for their kids.

The Foundation is extremely proud of its achievement in setting up an independent Indigenous Foundation to specifically meet educational needs of the Victorian Indigenous community.

The Foundation receives NO government funding.

The Foundation is currently supporting 210 Indigenous children in private educational institutions across Victoria, especially in rural areas.

Our Mission

The Foundation was established to address the current educational disadvantage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by facilitating a greater choice to education through independent educational institutions.
