Every community depends on passionate, hard-working people committed to the long-term resilience and vitality of the place where they live.
Community foundations are part of the community they support; they have first-hand knowledge of local issues and needs. They bring people together to pool resources and activate the power of giving for lasting impact.
Community foundations have the skills and structures that make it easy for anyone to donate to local causes and charities in the most effective way. They raise money to support a community’s changing needs over the long term.
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.
Australian Community Philanthropy unites, represents and supports community foundations across the country in a national network, to amplify their collective voice and impact.
Grant, donations and bequests to ACP create grassroots community impact on a national scale through our member network.
