Who we supported in 2018


Many of the organisations The Community Fund supports would not be able to fund projects themselves so we ensure those who want to impact and change our community for the better, receive the help they need.

We have already had grateful feedback from some of the organisations funded – it is so rewarding to hear that these funds are going to make a difference in communities around the region.  We would not be able to fund these grants without the generous support of the local community.

We are extremely grateful to the many businesses and individuals who support The Community Fund through donations, sponsorship, attending events and participating in corporate and work place giving.

The need in the local community is always greater than the funds available.  If you would like to donate to The Community Fund, go to our Donate page.
