Urgent Appeal for Support

Uphold & Recognise is a non-profit organisation committed to recognising Indigenous Australians and upholding the Australian Constitution. The effectiveness of our approach is evinced by the recent recommendations of the Referendum Council, submitted to the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition.

We actively stimulate a national conversation about constitutional recognition that realises the aspirations of Indigenous peoples but, at the same time, addresses the concerns of constitutional conservatives and liberals. 

We have received support from a number of organisations, including Reconciliation Australia and the Australian Catholic University; but now, we call on you to help us continue our vital work. We urgently require your financial assistance. To make a donation, please click here.
