Speaker/Chair Gifts:

Each speaker and chair will be thanked for their contribution with a donation to First Nations Foundation on their behalf.

First Nations Foundation is a not for profit organisation with a passion for building a better financial future for First Australians. They achieve this by improving financial inclusion for Indigenous Australians, training in financial literacy and assisting the financial services sector to enhance their products.

These donations will support the Big Super Day Out – Indigenous community events to help first Australians find their lost super, consolidate accounts, and become educated about the benefits that super offers.

Despite more than 25 years of compulsory superannuation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have poorer superannuation outcomes than non- Indigenous Australians – including significantly lower balances at retirement.

AIST is supporting the First Nations Foundation in line with its commitment to reconciliation and our mission to provide a better retirement outcome for all Australians.

Watch how the work we are doing with First Nations Foundation is making a difference to First Australians.
