About Us

Welcome to the South West Community Foundation

The South West Community Foundation is a philanthropic trust created by the people of South West Victoria, for the people of South West Victoria. Our vision is Strong Community. 

Established in 2007, our Mission is to “Foster a culture of philanthropy to strengthen the communities of South West Victoria”.

We provide small but vital grants to community organisations across the Warrnambool, Moyne, Glenelg, Southern Grampians, Corangamite and Colac Otway municipalities.

One of the Foundation’s key aims is to build a substantial, permanent trust fund, which supports projects that strengthen communities throughout South West Victoria. We believe in helping communities grow ‘from the ground up’ and generate funds through donations, endowments and bequests.

South West Community Foundation’s funds are held in perpetuity, which means the corpus funds continue to grow and the interest earned from their investment is used in the granting process. In the first seven years of operation, the Foundation grew a corpus of $2.1 million.  To learn more about us, downloaded our Annual Reports below:
