Yadha Muru Foundation
Yadha Muru Foundation seeks to grow and empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples whilst nurturing their identity, in partnership with schools, families and communities, by creating their own good path to learn, grow and thrive.
Yadha Muru means “good path” in the language of the local Dharug people. Dharug is the Aboriginal language traditionally spoken in Sydney, the location of the school that inspired us on this journey - St Andrew’s Cathedral Gawura School.
We recognise that high quality education is a powerful mechanism for development and growth for students, their families and the community, giving them the opportunity to realise their full human potential, and ultimately to lead a thriving and fulfilling life.
Ian and Shirley Norman Foundation
The Foundation pays homage to the late Ian and Shirley Norman, who worked tirelessly to successfully establish the retail business of Norman Ross followed by Harvey Norman. The family is very proud of their parents’ work and charitable giving and now, with the generous support of the three Norman children, Karen, Tracy, and Glen, the Foundation has been set up to continue their parents’ substantial philanthropic efforts.
The Ian & Shirley Norman Foundation will provide support to projects that focus on:
- Pillar 1 – Being Ecologically Sound
- Pillar 2 – Protecting People from Harm
- Pillar 3 – Walking Together with Traditional Custodians
- Pillar 4 – Empowering Communities
