First Nations Foundation (FNF) is a not-for-profit Indigenous organisation that works to break down the barriers to economic access and participation for First Nations peoples. The vision is simple yet powerful - assisting Indigenous people to participate equally in the economy will lead to improved economic outcomes for Indigenous Australians, which in turn will bolster Indigenous health and education with greater social and political inclusion.
FNF designs and runs educational and outreach programs that help Indigenous Australians better understand key financial services, such as superannuation. As part of its “Big Super Day Out” program, representatives from leading superannuation funds travel to Indigenous communities across the country to provide information about, and assistance in relation to, superannuation.
Arnold Bloch Leibler has supported FNF and its founders for nearly two decades, supporting it across all of its legal work, including negotiating and drafting funding agreements and software licensing agreements, as well as preparing sponsorship agreements.
“ABL understands that Aboriginal people are not defined by disadvantage but, rather, are a people of unrealised possibility that our nation needs more than ever, as we face the great social, economic and environmental challenges of our age. The continuance of the FNF/ABL relationship is paramount to our success in elevating Aboriginal economic well-being.”
