Northern Rivers Community Foundation

support Northern Rivers Communities

Where will your money go?

Your donation will go to the Northern Rivers Community Foundation (NRCF) and your selected Sub Fund. The NRCF is an independent philanthropic foundation, providing a sustainable way to benefit the community of the Northern Rivers region.
 
How will the funds be used?

The Foundation gathers gifts from a wide range of donors. These gifts can either be used for:

1) NRCF's annual Community Grants Program

2) For flow through into a specific grant program that has been selected by NRCF and the donor, such as the Resilience and Regeneration Fund and the 2020 Recovery Grant Program, or other programs such as the Back to School Program or SCU Bowen Scholarship Program.

Donations to other Sub Funds or Campaigns are invested in social impact ethical investments. As the Foundation grows its capital base, only the income from the investments is used to fund community projects. In this way, a donor's gift continues to benefit the community year after year.

The Foundation gives the income earned on investments back to the community through an annual Community Grants program. This Grants program supports social, environmental and cultural projects in the NSW Northern Rivers region that seek to alleviate disadvantage in our region. 

The Foundation ensures that grant funding is distributed fairly and effectively by drawing upon needs base information from credible community and government organisations.

*Please note: If you have selected to donate to the Northern Rivers Wildlife Hospital Infrastructure Fund, or the Resilience & Regeneration Fund, then your donation will support this specific project & associated grants program, and not be used for any other purpose.
