Australian Aboriginals

I wish to leave a gift, in my will, to Australian Aboriginals? Can anyone give legit (non-governmental [run by Aboriginal, if possible]) organisations dealing with Aboriginal welfare? Also, is the term "Aborignal" offensive, as I don't wish to offend anybody? If so, what is the acceptable terminology?

@Germanicus,
Germ, unless you're a bot, could you explain your motive, then without revealing anything critical to your ID, many of us might be curious about yourself; age, sex, nationality, ed., family, work, etc

@dalehileman,
Hi. I just feel great sympathy for Australian Aborigines. People around the world fight discrimination, and rightly so, but they seem to have forgotten about Native (I hope that's not offensive) Australians. Don't forget, they only got the right to vote in the 1960's. Imagine being second class citizens in one's own country. bye the way, I am not anti-Australian - far from it. I have no interest in politics and my religion is CHEMISTRY/PHYSICS.

PS. What the hell is a "BOT"?

@Germanicus,
It's shorty for "robot"

@Germanicus,
The Aboriginal Advancement League, based in Melbourne, assist Aboriginals with health, educational, financial, etc, matters, while also preserving the culture, traditions and artefacts.
'Aboriginal' is a perfectly acceptable word.
