Support ANTaR's End of Year Appeal to help close the life expectancy gap.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people still have a significantly shorter life expectancy than other Australians.
With a new Federal Government, we need to make sure that the national effort to Close the Gap receives the priority it deserves. ANTaR has welcomed the statement by the Federal Government that they support Close the Gap "in principle". However, we need to work hard to ensure that this "in principle" support is backed up by long-term action.
We need to raise enough money to commit to these actions, among others, in 2014:
- Producing a second edition of our Success Stories in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health publication - on successful programs established as a result of the COAG National Partnership Agreement to Close the Gap, which expired in June this year. This publication will help persuade governments to sign up to a new Agreement.
- Helping to organise a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workforce Summit to influence the Federal Government's review of support for Aboriginal employment programs. This will deomnstrate the health, social and economic benefits of greater investment in the nation's largest employer of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - the health sector.
- Organising a new lecture series specifically targeting Liberal and National Party policy makers on the importance of continued support of Close the Gap.
Closing the gap within a generation will take a massive effort, but ANTaR is committed to seeing it through. With your donation, we can continue our work on Close the Gap so that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will have the same chance of enjoying the life expectancy that so many of us take for granted.
Donate today to help us create safer communities and reduce the over-imprisonment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
With your help, ANTaR can continue to campaign and fight for a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have the same chance as non-Indigenous Australians to live a free, healthy, prosperous and fulfilling life; where the rights, cultures and unique contribution of Aboriginal peoples to Australia are recognised and where Aboriginal people share equally in the nation’s wealth and opportunities.
Your monthly gift will allow ANTaR to plan effective campaigns and continue our vital work for justice, rights and respect for Australia's First Peoples.
Your monthly donation will be automatically contributed from your credit card. We will send you a receipt annually, just after the end of each financial year, showing all of your regular donations. You can change or cancel your regular donations at any time.
We rely on the generosity of our donors. Your donation will help ANTaR achieve the social and political change needed to overcome Indigenous disadvantage. By supporting ANTaR you join the only national advocacy organisation dedicated specifically to the rights and justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
- Be part of a genuinely grass-roots movement for justice, rights and respect
ANTaR was born as a grassroots movement of people, coming together to support the aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for justice and rights. Your commitment makes ANTaR what it is – an organisation founded on the passion and integrity of community supporters around the country.
- Get behind campaigns built on partnership.
ANTaR is working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to reduce imprisonment rates, finally eliminate racism from our Constitution, achieve health equality and address discrimination in Northern Territory communities.
- Support a small dynamic NGO, with low overheads
Although ANTaR is a small organisation, we are actively engaged across a range of policy issues and campaigns. We respond quickly in the media to new developments. Our overheads are low, which means your donations make a bigger impact.
- Provide direct support for Australia's First Peoples
Along with advocacy, we deliver an economic development program that directly benefits Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Through our online shop and merchandise program, we support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, musicians, producers and businesses.
- Support informed, evidence-based advocacy for a better Australia
ANTaR’s campaigns and advocacy are based on evidence and human rights principles. Our work is inclusive and non-partisan, respectful, collaborative and strategic.
ANTaR uses industry-standard technology and procedures to secure every transaction.

Depending on your browser, this will often be a padlock in the status bar or address bar, or site identity button to the left of the web address in the address bar. You can view details of ANTaR's security certificate and the level of encryption by clicking on this indicator.
ANTaR uses up to 256-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to encrypt sensitive data between your browser and our servers.
Credit card payments
ANTaR uses eWay, one of Australia's most awarded and respected on-line payment services, to process your credit card payment.
eWay uses 256-bit encryption to communicate securely with ANTaR's servers and processes payments in real time through secure off-line links with all major Australian banks and credit card providers.
ANTaR is an independent, non-party political organisation that relies almost entirely on donations from the public to continue its work. In this way, ANTaR's advocacy and voice remains strong and focussed on evidence and human rights. Currently, the Australian Government does not allow not-for-profits that are primarily engaged in advocacy activities to have tax-deductible status. Although your donations to ANTaR are not tax-deductible, you can be sure that ANTaR remains politically independent in supporting Indigenous peoples' fight for justice in Australia.
