The Mary Boydell Endowment Fund

Your unique opportunity to invest in the future of Indigenous education in Australia


Like all gifts that benefit Yalari, endowed gifts contribute to the ongoing high quality of educational opportunities and support for Indigenous children.

Endowments are particularly powerful because they deliver a dependable, perpetual source of funding.

Your gift to Yalari’s Mary Boydell Endowment Fund (MBEF) is an investment in the future of Yalari—one that fulfils our shared vision of educating and empowering Indigenous children now, and for many years to come.

Please consider partnering with us to make a philanthropic investment that will strengthen Yalari’s capacity to support Indigenous children in perpetuity and change the social landscape of Indigenous Australia.


Yalari is a not-for-profit organisation offering secondary education scholarships at leading Australian boarding schools for Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities.

Founded in 2005 by Indigenous educationalist Waverley Stanley AM, his wife Llew Mullins and a group of like-minded individuals, Yalari offers boarding school scholarships, student support programs, tertiary guidance and post-school opportunities.

It is through the support of generous individuals, companies and organisations that together, we are enacting positive change through the education and empowerment of Indigenous children.x


To educate and empower Indigenous children from regional, rural and remote communities to bring about generational change.


To provide trusted, quality educational opportunities for Indigenous children to achieve positive outcomes for themselves and their families and make a valuable contribution as Australians.


Values of respect, compassion, resilience, openness, inclusiveness and excellence underpin our approach.
