Since inception, the Audi Foundation has raised over $2.2 million for its charity partners and provided support to over 500,000 individuals and families through its grant program which raises money via Audi Australia and the national Audi Dealer Network.


The latest Audi Foundation Raffle will offer the chance to win a brand-new Audi Q8, worth over $168,000. Tickets are priced at $50, and proceeds go towards supporting over nine different charity partner programs including, R U OK?, Reach Out, The Smith Family, Camp Quality, Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Charlie Teo Foundation, The Country Education Foundation (CEF), and Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.


In addition, Audi Australia will offer further support to Australians who may be struggling with mental health during such a difficult year, by contributing $10 for every raffle ticket sold, directly to Lifeline, a free 24/7 crisis support counselling service. Audi Australia’s donation – up to $100,000 if all tickets are sold – will ensure that Lifeline is able to increase its capacity to meet greater demand.


“The effects of the bush fire disaster and the Coronavirus pandemic have made 2020 a very difficult year for many Australians,” said Paul Sansom, Chairman of the Audi Foundation Board and Managing Director of Audi Australia. “However, that only means that our existing charity partners need the support of the Audi Foundation more than ever – especially when the nation’s attention has deservedly been fixed on other areas of immediate concern.


“Audi Australia is privileged to be in a position to help, and with our donation to Lifeline, we hope to provide support to Australians who may be in their most desperate time of need.


“We also thank those who take part in our Audi Q8 raffle, with all funds raised going toward continuing the good work of our existing charity partners,” said Sansom. Carrie Leeson, CEO of Lifeline Canberra, was thankful for Audi’s long-time support of Lifeline’s work.


“From prevention through to crisis support, Audi’s continual investment in our programs has measurably improved the lives of many Australians.


“Through COVID-19 and beyond, Audi’s donation will again target a critical area of need in the Australian community with 24-hour crisis support offered via tele-services. This national service caters for every Australian, any age, any conceivable human crisis at any time of the day or night.


“We are incredibly grateful to Audi for its repeated support and genuine commitment to driving meaningful change in Australian communities.” said Leeson.
