Since its inception in 2017 the Audi Foundation has raised more than $6.5 million to support life-changing programs right around the country

The first Audi Foundation raffle for 2024 is now up and running, with supporters going into the draw to win a limited edition Audi RS Q3 Sportback model valued at $124,853* (drive away). Celebrating its seventh year this year, the Audi Foundation, working with its eight not-for-profit partners, has made a tremendous positive contribution to individuals and communities since it was launched by Audi Australia in 2017, supporting established programs designed to foster positive outcomes both in the short and long term. Since its inception the Audi Foundation has raised more than $6.5 million, with its two annual raffles instrumental in reaching that figure, along with added support from the Audi Australia national dealer network as well as generous donations from individuals.

Once again just 12,000 tickets will be available at a cost of $50 each, with the raffle open to all Australian residents aged 18 and over. Funds raised go to assist the Audi Foundation and its partners in continuing their work across positive mental health outcomes, education and employment as well as medical research and equipment.

“We’re indebted to the thousands of people who continually support the work of the Audi Foundation and its charity partners through initiatives like our fundraising raffles,” says Jeff Mannering, Director of Audi Australia and Chairman of the Audi Foundation.

The ongoing projects supported by fundraising initiatives like this one are as diverse as they are far-reaching. From the groundbreaking research conducted by the Children’s Cancer Institute through its Zero program, to buying much-needed medical equipment for children’s hospital wards through the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, medical research and outcomes are a key pillar. So too mental health through the Audi Foundation’s support of ReachOut, RU OK? and batyr. Not-for-profits focusing on youth education and well-being are also supported through the work of the Country Education Foundation of Australia, Youth Opportunities and Zephyr Education Inc, while the foundation also supports sustainable communities through special crisis assistance when disasters such as flooding and bushfires place communities under extreme and unforeseen pressure. The work right across all of the pillars and organisations has a proven, long-term track record and continues to deliver outstanding results and positively change lives.
