Aurora is a NSW based charity raising funds to disburse to organisations providing much-needed support and services to the many different facets of the LGBTIQ community. Conceived in 1999 by a group of socially minded friends, we seek to bridge the gap in the funding and support available to smaller organisations servicing the LGBTIQ community. A simple remit, and we’ve held true to this aim ever since.

Aurora exists so people can support a broad range of projects responding to the coalface needs of our community. We are the organisation people choose when they want their money to benefit the little groups doing big things.

Supporting Aurora means you join us in our commitment to raise funds through events that engage and celebrate the LGBTIQ community while empowering grass roots organisations to have the capacity to maximise their outreach and impact and ensure their projects are successfully realised.
