ILF raises $285k in first quarter, announces new sponsorship

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) has raised $285,000 in the first quarter of 2016, and has secured a new $10,000 sponsorship from 1010 Printing, which will fund three of its major community projects this year.

At its April board meeting, ILF established two new committees for its long-term strategy and fundraising, while a number of new community publishing projects were also confirmed, including a proposal for a book in an Aboriginal language. The board also gave thanks to outgoing chair Juliet Rogers and directors Suzy Wilson and David Gaunt, who will retain ambassador roles at the foundation.

Advance copies of ILF’s new community book, to be released on Indigenous Literacy Day in September, will be available at the ILF stand at the joint Australian Booksellers Association/Leading Edge conference trade day on 29 May in Canberra.
