Give where you live (to a regional sub-fund) Kirsten Downes
Do you want to give to your regional community?
Queensland Community Foundation has three regional sub-funds – Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba. 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.
Distributions to charities in the nominated region are made each year; local not-for-profit groups are encouraged to submit applications during these grant rounds.
QCF has appointed three Regional Advisory Boards 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 Board.
