The Hobsons Bay Community Fund is a perpetual philanthropic fund established to benefit and strengthen the community of Hobsons Bay for present and future generations.
HBCF’s vision is a harmonious community working to build trust and encourage economic, racial, and social fairness; cultural richness; and environmental sustainability.
To help realise its vision, the HBCF will aim to:
- Create a lasting community asset, ensuring Hobsons Bay residents can access in perpetuity, a steadily growing corpus (fund) for community development;
- Highlight the great value of charitable giving, and enabling donors to support, and see the fruits of investing in their community during their lifetime;
- Encourage interaction and partnerships between a range of people (donors, governments, businesses, community groups, other charitable organisations) to fortify the local community and find solutions to challenges;
- Act as a trustworthy partner and leader in shaping collaborative and effective responses to local issues and opportunities.
The work of the HBCF will be informed by our values.
integrity, inclusiveness, creativity and commitment to the strengthening and sustainability of the community.
