Founded in 1954, the Give Where You Live Foundation has always held the community at the centre of its work.  

We seek a better, fairer G21 community. To help, we will bring people and organisations together to tackle challenges, while advocating and rallying the community to support change. We will imagine and progress new ideas and help and support community organisations that work on the frontline.  

We want to build a better, fairer society and want to use all our energy and resources in partnership with the community to help all people and all places in the G21 region thrive. 

Based on our Theory of Change the Give Where You Live Foundation provides funding in the following outcome areas: 

  • Education
  • Employment
  • Survive and Thrive 

For further information on what we fund and eligibility criteria please refer to the Grant Guidelines.
