Changing Lives

Moriarty Foundation is changing the lives of the next generation of Indigenous kids. Our locally-led programs enable families and communities to unlock their children’s potential. We embrace the Aboriginal worldview to radically shift intergenerational disadvantage. We are a 100% Deductible Gift Recipient, Public Benevolent Institution.

Moriarty Foundation was founded in 2011 by John and Ros Moriarty at the request of senior Aboriginal Law women in Borroloola, a remote community in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Territory, who wanted to see their grandchildren educated.
