Documentary Australia Foundation Supporters

We would like to thank our supporters for their contribution to Documentary Australia Foundation’s (DAF’s) core operations. These visionary donors support the strategic growth of the organisation.

As a truly independent initiative, DAF utilises a small, yet growing pipeline of core and committed supporters who are inspired by our innovative model.

Having the support of unrestricted funds from key supporters means we can continue to build, strengthen and deliver on our organisation’s mission.

Special thanks
