Welcome to our March newsletter. We've lots to tell you.
The Inner North North Community Foundation is delighted to welcome Patricia Lauria as our new Executive Officer.
Our former Executive Officer, Sharon Nathani, resigned after nearly 4 years in the role and the Board is deeply appreciative for the outstanding contribution made by Sharon over this time.
Patricia comes to the Foundation following a broad career in the community and not for profit sector, most recently as CEO of South East Volunteers. Patricia managed Ross House prior to her role at South East Volunteers and also has an impressive history in working for managing community legal centres, a community information centre and coordinating a community house.
Patricia brings strong experience and skills in contemporary grant making, working with the community and philanthropic sector, developing relationships across a range of stakeholder groups as well as holding senior management roles over many years. She lives locally and has long term connections with the inner north.
We look forward to Patricia further contributing her considerable skills to help the Inner North Community Foundation build its presence and effectiveness for the communities of Melbourne’s inner north region.

It is an inviting mix of significant trees including the property's namesake - a weeping Linden. Other features include the citrus garden, raised curved veggie bed, fruit trees intermingled with cottage garden plants and contemporary drought resistant plant beds.
Thank you so much to Linda Angel for supporting the Inner North Community Foundation by opening her garden for this event.

Join us in Run Melbourne
On Sunday July 26th, the team at the Inner North Community Foundation is again participating in Run Melbourne.
Join us to get fit, have some fun and raise some money to support the Foundation. Walk or run with us or sponsor our team members. Your support will go to people disadvantaged in their access to work. Many of the programs we fund support people who don't know how to get a job, they don't understand how to apply, or might be discriminated against because of a disability, mental illness or having just come out of the criminal or juvenile justice system.
Help us make this year the biggest ever for Team Inner North Community!
