About Us

Why the Reset Challenge?

Reset Challenge is Sir David Martin Foundation's new online fundraising campaign, raising vital funds for young people in crisis. Funds raised help young people with drug and alcohol addiction to get well and prepare for new life opportunities.

Reset Challenge is an initiative of Sir David Martin Foundation. The challenge of forming a new healthy habit, and the fear and anxiety this can bring on is something that each young person goes through as they begin their journey to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, and mental health illness.

Sir David Martin Foundation

Sir David Martin Foundation is a 30-year old Family Foundation, helping young people in crisis.

The Foundation is named after the former Governor of NSW and the Martin family continues to drive the vision of Sir David, to give safety, hope and opportunity to all vulnerable young Australians. Through philanthropy, we help young people in crisis by enabling best practice models of treatment for youth drug and alcohol addiction.

The Foundation is the major funder of Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm, a unique, holistic treatment centre which each year gives over 200 vulnerable young Australians, aged 16-24, a safe place to get well and prepare for new opportunities.

Providing best practice programs, we help young people discover new positive habits or routines for a brighter future.
