About Ninti One Foundation

The Ninti One Foundation (NOF) was registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC) in 2014, with the purpose of advancing health, education and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. NOF is registered in each Australian State and Territory. It has a majority Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Board, with Prof Tom Calma AO (Kungarakan and Iwaidja) as its Chairperson and Glenise Coulthard (Adnyamathanha) as Deputy Chair. It is backed by Ninti One Limited, which has ISO9001 quality systems and strong financial viability.

NOF attracts donations from the public as well as philanthropists such as the CAGES Foundation, Cultural Copyright Foundation, Gandel Foundation, the Rockefeller Philanthropies and Newman’s Own Foundation. It is best known for researching and advising the ‘Indigenous Funders Network’ (Philanthropy Australia) about community-led philanthropy; tackling trachoma in remote communities; and protecting the copyright of Indigenous knowledge. NOF is also highly respected by the Philanthropy community due to its sponsorship of the National Indigenous Philanthropy Award (Philanthropy Australia) since 2017.
