Help support our work

The Inner North Community Foundation is able to carry out our programs through the support of partners and donors, people like you who are passionate about our local area.  You can support our work through a once-off donation, regular giving, workplace giving, or even setting up your own named fund (which allows you to direct your giving to an issue or organisation of your choice).  Because of the generous support of our major donor, IntoWork Australia, 100% of donations received go towards our corpus earning interest which is paid out as grants. To support the great projects we work with visit our donations page or read about how you can directly impact our local community through a named sub-fund.

Thanks for reading from Richmond to Reservoir, Fitzroy to Fawkner and Brunswick to Bundoora. I've had an enjoyable time working closely with many of you - both grantee organisations and donors - thanks for having me - it's been a wonderful experience.
