A recent report by Social Ventures Australia measures conclusively the long-term, transformative effect of the Indigenous Marathon Project, not only for graduates but also for family members, community members and whole communities who then make long-term behavioural changes. In monetary terms, it found that for every $1 of investment in the IMP, a $6.6 return was made. You can read the summary here:
Please contact the IMF head office for the full SVA report.
The IMF is heavily funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Health – without this ongoing support, the Foundation will cease to exist.
It is our long-term goal to establish a $20 million endowment fund to ensure the Foundation’s long-term self-sustainability.
We need your help to achieve this goal.
