About the Give Where You Live Foundation

Located in Geelong, the Give Where You Live Foundation is a unique, place-based philanthropic community foundation.

In essence, we are a change-maker for our region. We are constantly looking at, assessing, and addressing social needs within our region. We are simultaneously proactive and reactive.

And what are we wanting to change?

We want to take our current community, build upon it and make its foundations fairer for everyone. Through a combination of innovative and traditional programs and support, we are creating meaningful change to people’s lives in our community, and inspiring our community to do the same.

These innovative and traditional programs (our Change Initiatives) include our grants programs, advocacy work, the innovative GROW program , WorkWellFeed Geelong , and Community Choice.

Our dream?

To create a community in which equity is normalised. A community that sees a need and addresses it. A community that thrives. A community with improved education outcomes, fairer employment and training opportunities and support for people experiencing life-inhibiting crises.
