Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

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.

Our Values

The work of the HBCF will be informed by our values.

We value:

integrity, inclusiveness, creativity and commitment to the strengthening and sustainability of the community.
