Events

indigo foundation and our supporters run some great events through the year – from gala dinners to trivia nights, stand up comedy to bike ride challenges. Come along and meet up with our fantastic fantastic community of supporters in Australia. If you are interested in hosting an event we would love to hear from you – info@indigofoundation.org.

Click here to read about some of our previous events, like our annual Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney dinners, a private screening of Charlie’s Country with a Q&A by award-winning director Rolf de Heer and an open garden day.

Due to Covid-19 and government restrictions, we have had to cancel recent events in Canberra and Sydney. Thank you to those who had wanted to join us and celebrate 20 years of community partnerships. We hope to be able to reschedule in the near future and in the meantime we are launching some fantastic virtual fundraisers and ‘covid-safe’ events.

We hope to see you at an upcoming event below!
