Ø         The Foundation was established on 26 January 1994.
 
 
Ø         Our first actitivities were delivering structured HSC tutorials and high school coaching. These activities took place in hired school premises, community halls and individual homes in Sydney. 1994 was also the year when the Foundation commenced group home activities in leased premises at Mascot. 
 

Ø         In December 1995, our Foundation was able to purchase outright the current property of Amity College at Prestons for $487,500, which was raised with enormous community support. 

 

Ø         After Liverpool City Council granted temporary permission to commence the school in portable buildings in 1995 and granted formal approval of the site to operate as a co-educational school in 1996, Amity College opened its doors to its first 33 students in February 1996.
 
 
Ø         Shortly after, we opened a primary school campus in Illawarra (Wollongong) and also one in Auburn.
 
 
Ø         In 1996, the Foundation started its first international food appeal, known as the qurban appeal.
 
 
Ø         The annual qurban festival also started in 1996 with the aim of celebrating multicultural diversity.
 
 
Ø         Between 1998 and 2000, Galaxy Foundation operated a book and giftware shop in Sydney (called the Light Bookshop) to address the reading needs of the community on general knowledge, recreational, cultural and historical issues.
 
 
Ø         Between 2000 and 2003, Galaxy Foundation operated Aurora Sydney Tutorial Centre to provide after school tuition programs for both primary and high school students. 
 
 
Ø         In December 2007, Galaxy Foundation purchased the premises on Level 1, 27 Queen Street Auburn NSW 2144. This building will be used as the second campus for Auburn Amity College in 2010. 
 
 
Ø         In May 2009, Galaxy Foundation purchased its first boarding home in Auburn to provide a comfortable boarding environment for students under supervision.

Prior to 2012, Galaxy Foundation had organised qurban collection campaigns however from 2013 onwards, the Foundation had decided to support other organisations which undertake Annual Qurban campaigns in NSW instead.
