The Raymond E Purves Logo

The Raymond E Purves Foundation works with Mission Australia to support young people facing a range of serious personal issues holding them back from striving for success in life, helping to overcome the disadvantage they face so they have the chance to achieve their full potential.

The Raymond E Purves Foundation has supported Mission Australia’s Creative Youth Initiative program for 20 years and their commitment to the welfare of vulnerable youth has helped thousands of young people, and is deeply appreciated.

Mission Australia would like to sincerely thank The Raymond E Purves Foundation for standing together with us to help Australians in need.
