The Kela Foundation was founded in February 2017 by Malcolm (Mal) Roy Smith. Mal established the foundation to give underprivileged children and their communities access to the same opportunities that were afforded to him as a child in Australia.
Kela Foundation partners with vulnerable families across Australia, helping children and their communities receive the education services they need to succeed in the future. Our foundation is committed to transforming the lives of disadvantaged people and helping them break the cycle of poverty. If you’re looking for support, we encourage you to contact us.
The Kela Foundation is honoured to benefit from the dedication and diverse abilities of our volunteer Board of Directors. Our board members include respected leaders in Australia’s corporate industry, passionate about creating opportunities for disadvantaged children and their communities.
Our work is generously supported by a community of corporate partners. Together, we create brighter futures for Australian children, their families and their friends.
