First developed by the Toronto Community Foundation in 2001, it became a national program spearheaded by Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) in 2006 and is now licenced by CFC for use by community foundations throughout the world.
In Australia, six Community Foundations have so far collaborated with local stakeholders to undertake this pulse check in their communities – see reports below.
Further Vital Signs reports by Australia’s Community Foundations will be released in 2020, we’ll share these as soon as they become available.
ACP manages licencing of Vital Signs in Australia. To participate, a community foundation needs to be a member of ACP in good standing.
