WHAT WE DO

FOUNDATION OBJECTIVES

  • To establish, maintain and provide scholarships, bursaries or prizes covering all levels of education, in order to encourage and develop knowledge and skills in all fields of primary industry to predominantly benefit the community of South Australia;

  • To encourage recipients of scholarships, bursaries or prizes to become involved in the activities of the Show Society; and

  • To undertake activities and promotions to educate the community of South Australia about the importance of primary industry to the economy and social fabric of the State.

Over the past seven years, the Society has gifted $2.1million in Royal Adelaide Show tickets and vouchers to South Australian charitable and non-profit groups. Additionally, the Society proudly supports non-profit and agricultural organisations in various ways.  Annually, complimentary use of facilities, labour and equipment is provided for events such as; Cancer Council SA’s Relay for Life, Salvation Army’s Christmas Drive, Novita Children’s Services Christmas Party and more.
