Welcome to the DAK Foundation

The DAK Foundation is a Private Ancillary Fund founded by Dave and Kerry Rickards in 2010. We partner with DGR accredited organisations in Australia (in particular with Partners For Equity) to support projects around the world. We are a small dynamic team that looks to utilise and enhance existing capacity rather than build something new from the ground up. Being self funded DAK is able to focus only on outcomes.

Please Note: The DAK Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests for funding. We do not receive donations from the public.
