A new Audi Q8 is being offered up in the annual Audi Foundation Raffle, now into its fifth year of raising money for Australia charity programs.

Worth more than $168,000 including luxury tax and on-road costs, the Q8 55TFSI is the big prize for entrants claiming a $50 ticket through the foundation's website.

Buying a raffle ticket supports a number of charity organisations and programs, including R U OK?, ReachOut, The Smith Family, Camp Quality, Humpty Dumpty Foundation, Charlie Teo Foundation, The Country Education Foundation (CEF), and Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.

Since its inception in 2017, the Audi Foundation has raised more than $2.2 million for its charity partner programs, while its grant program – operated through Audi Australia and the Audi Dealer Network – has provided further support for over 500,000 individuals and families.

“The Audi Foundation is a corporate philanthropic foundation, offering support to not-for-profit organisations that share Audi Australia’s focus and ambition to drive change in our communities,” said Paul Sansom, Audi Australia boss and Audi Foundation Board Member.

“The Charity Fundraising Raffle will assist with vital funding towards progressive approaches in medical treatments and reshaping education and career pathways for rural and regional areas, as well as fostering a positive change in mental health."

The Audi Foundation Charity Fundraising Raffle opened for entry on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 at 8:00pm AEST. It will run until November 11, 2020, closing at 5:00pm. Tickets can be purchased here.
