About The Arnott’s Foundation
The Arnott’s Foundation is the charitable arm of Arnott’s Biscuits Ltd.
Millions of Australians have grown up with our products and for them, like us, Arnott’s is more than a food company – it is part of our history. Our goal was to make a positive contribution to the families and community that have supported us over the years. The Arnott’s Foundation is a result of this vision and commitment.
Through the Foundation, Arnott’s supports projects including:
- Camp Quality – since 2008, The Arnott’s Foundation has raised more than $1million for Camp Quality, helping the charity with their goal of creating a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia

- Driver Reviver – Arnott’s Biscuits proudly support Driver Reviver volunteers save lives across Australia. Each holiday season up to 220 Driver Reviver sites open across Australia. They offer a free cup of hot Bushells tea, coffee, an Arnott’s biscuit and most importantly, a chance to revive so you reach your destination safe and sound.
- Fairy Sparkle – The Arnott’s Foundation has been supporting Fairy Sparkle for 10 years, assisting her establish “Fairy Gardens” at hospitals in NSW and Queensland. Most recently, with the support of The Arnott’s Foundation, Fairy Sparkle has worked on the ”happy garden” project, which has seen eight separate gardens built in hospitals around Sydney. The project aims to create a sanctuary outside the ward, where patients and their families can go to relax, seek inspiration and interact as a ”normal” family.
