The Richard Cole Fund was founded on a donation from Dr Martin Cole, the foundation Chair of Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL), to the Foundation for the Advancement of Astronomy. The funds are directed towards supporting ASA activities for students – in particular the ASA/ANITA Summer School in Theoretical Astrophysics and the Astroinformatics School.

The ongoing war in Ukraine and other conflicts elsewhere across the world has brought to our attention the clear need to support members in our community. One way we can do this is through financial support, as the ASA has been doing with the ASA Covid Fund. The IDEA Community Fund is a broader fund designed to help any ASA member experiencing financial hardship.
