Wattle League Foundation

Established as the fundraising arm of Open Minds,
Wattle League Foundation is an organisation working with individuals to enhance mental health and wellbeing.

The Foundation’s first goal is to raise $1 million over the next two years for the Mates Stay Project. 100% of every donation will be used to support returned Australian Defence Force men and woman at risk of or already homeless due to mental health issues, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or an Acquired Brain Injury.

Since WW1 your organisation has provided strong support to returned Servicemen and women, and it is inspirational to note that your commitment continues today.

I congratulate Open Minds for your initiative with the Wattle League Foundation, and in particular for the support it offers our Returned Service Personnel via the Mates Stay Project in Brisbane. Your support through this project, to veterans at risk from homelessness, is deeply appreciated.

I’m sure that the Mates Stay Project will greatly assists former service personnel and their families who need such support, and I commend Open Minds for their practical initiative.
