Donate to support your local community

South West Victorians are philanthropists in so many ways.  We give our time, expertise, money and other resources to advance our own community and the world at large.  So far, South West Community Foundation has built a total corpus of $2.1 million dollars over 7 years.  This has largely been the result of the generosity of our community.  When the Colac community rose to a challenge and raised $100,000, the Victorian State Government matched it with $300,000. Several large donations and bequests have been made by local people and many more small, regular donations are made every week by our workplace giving donors.

The donations keep the corpus growing and the interest from the corpus supports our annual granting to not-for-profit, charitable projects across our region that support our community in so many ways. Donations to South West Community Foundation are donations to our community that go on giving forever. Donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.
