Queensland Community Foundation has four regional sub-funds – Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast,Toowoomba and North Queensland. Donations to these sub-funds allow people and organisations to support charities and community causes that directly benefit these regions.
In addition, donations made to these regional sub-funds are invested in perpetuity with the income generated donated to charities and community services in the respective regions.
Grants to charities in the nominated region are made each year. Local charities with DGR1 status, as endorsed by the Australian Tax Office are encouraged to apply in an annual funding round.
QCF has appointed four Regional Advisory Committees to assist the Foundation in considering grant applications from local charities and organisations, and to recommend to the Trustee eligible recipients.
You can donate, or leave money or assets, specifically to the Trustee of QCF for the specified regional sub-fund. Money will be used to meet pressing and emerging needs in the region based on the recommendations of the local Advisory Committee.
