SERVICES & PROJECTS
We provide grants of up to $1,000 - $5,000 per annum to community-based organisations (CBOs) with a turnover of less than $20,000 per year. Funding can be used for business planning, monitoring and evaluation, salaries, IT software and other system tools, collaboration, running costs, and capital costs.
CHAMPIONS 4 CHANGE
Social development cannot happen without the support of people and the organisations they run – be it as donor or a community group itself. In order to honour, recognise and celebrate these champions for change the Foundation aims to run an annual award showcasing what great work is changing lives and what generosity that enables that change.
For those looking to set up their own charitable funds without the hassle of setting up a charitable organisation, we can help you achieve your objectives by guiding you through the process, setting up a simple governing document, performing due diligence, transferring funds, providing follow up/support for monitoring & evaluation on grants, ensuring reports are returned in time.
We provide training and technical support to the CBOs that we fund, and
build their capacity in fundraising, project management, financial management, governance, research, monitoring & evaluation, charity start ups and reporting.
ADVOCACY & LEADERSHIP
We undertake research, build community resources, promote strategic relationships and develop partnerships with the government, the general public and charity sector; enabling us to assume a leadership role within the community.
Our independence places us in an ideal positon to bring people together and ultimately help lead local responses.
We provide advice, information and guidance to CBOs and individuals running a community group or looking to run one, and individuals and organisations looking to support CBOs. Information includes data on the local environment; trends and actions needed to develop solutions; funding, volunteering and networking opportunities; and charity policy & legislation. Eventually we plan open a community hub
