Greater Hamilton Sub Fund

South West Community Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the Greater Hamilton Sub Fund.

This Sub Fund will benefit the people of the Southern Grampians Shire area by building a source of funds for granting to community projects.

How does it work?

Donations to the Greater Hamilton Sub Fund are invested. The interest generated is used to make grants and that’s what makes this a sustainable model. A donation to the Greater Hamilton Sub Fund is a gift to the community that keeps giving, year after year.

How does this help our community?

  • It allows the community to make tax deductable donations that will support local projects
  • It builds a sustainable, permanent source of locally controlled funds for granting
  • It empowers our community by reducing dependence on government funding

First Goal

Our first goal is to raise $250,000. At this point, the Sub Fund will be big enough to start making small grants to local projects and the Board of South West Community Foundation may appoint an Advisory Committee. The role of the Advisory Committee is to provide the Board with advice on local priorities.

The bigger the Sub Fund gets, the greater the possibilities…

The Greater Hamilton Sub Fund will be officially launched on 18th March 2015 at a black tie fundraising event in Hamilton, Dinner with Sir Gustav Nossal.  The Dinner is being held in conjunction with Southern Grampians Shire Council’s, Tackling the Wicked Which’s of The West Forum.

Tickets to the Dinner are on sale now via
