At the start of the new financial year, let’s take a moment to pause; 2020 has not been an easy year so far. As of today, some areas of Melbourne are back in Stage 3 stay-at-home restrictions and we are all keenly aware that more challenges lie ahead. Yet at the start of July, half of this difficult year is now behind us, and so is the shortest day of the year and we slowly move towards lighter, warmer days.
Community philanthropy provides essential support for communities working their way back to normality. The collective efforts of our members are really shining through in these difficult times. We also thank our partners and supporters for increasing their investment into this special sector.
We salute you all for your commitment and energy as we tackle challenges new and old, day after day. Let’s keep working and learning together, looking after each other and our communities. Stay safe and well and keep up your amazing work.
