According to Australian Community Philanthropy, organisations like East Gippsland Community Foundation have the skills and structures that make it easy for anyone to donate to local causes and charities in the most effective way.
The unique value of community foundations lies in local action on local issues. Their shared commitment is to create a fairer, more sustainable Australia where everyone belongs, and they raise money to support a community’s changing needs over the long term.
Community foundations are uniquely placed to understand and respond to the immediate and long-term needs of their community. As trustee of charitable funds, the East Gippsland Community Foundation will partner with donors, local organisations, and communities to benefit East Gippsland in perpetuity.
