Creating real change where it's needed.

About Us

Founded by Aaron and Elena Sansoni, the Aaron Sansoni Foundation was established to create real change where it’s needed. With both founders growing up in underprivileged backgrounds, the foundation holds a strong focus towards raising money for charities within Australia. Our goal is to create national awareness and funds for our charity partners while calling upon our large volunteer networks to assist us serving those who need it.

Every year the Aaron Sansoni Foundation chooses a not-for-profit charity to partner with and give back to. We believe in fewer barriers and more donations getting to where they’re needed, which is why the total operating cost of the Aaron Sansoni Foundation is covered by Aaron Sansoni to ensure the maximum percentage of donations goes to where it should. When we say every cent goes to those in need, that’s exactly what we mean.

In 2018 we partnered with OzHarvest and our goal was to raise $125,000 to feed a quarter of a million of those who are disadvantaged. We are delighted to say that we achieved that goal!

In 2019 we partnered with The Starlight Foundation. Starlight are Australia’s broadest reaching children’s charity and with no government funding – they rely solely on community support to deliver their hospital and community programs, and achieve their mission, which is ‘to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families’. We are proud to say we brightened the lives of over 857 seriously ill children.

In 2020 Aaron Sansoni Foundation has already donated $10 000 the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, going directly towards the townships and families affected by the bush fires. Aaron Sansoni Foundation will continue to find new great causes to support looking into the future.

Aaron Sansoni’s Commitment

100% OF ALL FUNDS DONATED GO DIRECTLY TO HELPING THOSE IN NEED, WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

ZERO COSTS, FEES OR EXPENSES ARE DEDUCTED FROM DONATIONS; ALL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH AARON SANSONI FOUNDATION OPERATIONS ARE 100% COVERED BY AARON SANSONI.

As well as raising awareness for the causes the Foundation works with, Aaron has also made a commitment to personally donate two percent of gross revenues of select products and services at select events from his education businesses directly to the Aaron Sansoni Foundation each quarter.
