What is the Hobsons Bay Community Fund?
A community fund is about building the kind of future we want. It gives now and is a long-term investment to empower future generations. It an inheritance to address issues young people will face when we are not there to help them out.
Since 2006, HBCF has built up $990,000 and used the interest to provide grants to community organisations across Hobsons Bay. So far 100+ organisations have received grants over $250,000.
Additional donations increase the investment fund as well as the amount allocated each year to community organisations.
The Community Fund operates as a sub fund of the Australian Communities Foundation, we are supported by Council, but are run by an independent incorporated board and supported by local businesses.
We’re locally owned and operated with no overhead costs meaning every dollar raised, goes into the fund.
