Why Give to the NRCF

With the many appeals for donations from different charities, deciding how to give can be a difficult process. The Northern Rivers Community Foundation makes this process easy for donors by providing a way to support local groups knowing that the funds will go to the most needy and be properly managed. In essence “we help you help others”.

  • You can make a one off donation or commit to regular giving, such as monthly
  • You can place your donation in a Sub Fund which supports an area of interest, such a youth, education, the environment
  • Your gift goes on benefiting the community in perpetuity as only the income from investments is spent
  • All grants are directed to specific projects which are mentored by a board or grant committee member and need to be fuly acquitted
  • You can read grant recipient stories in the Foundation’s newsletter sent to donors
  • It is satisfying to know that you helping to build a better local community
  • You can choose the amount of your donation to be used for administration which helps the NRCF meet its statutory obligations
  • We can manage a company’s complete giving program
  • You can establish your own Sub Fund without the onerous obligations of establishing your own Foundation or Prescribed Private Fund
  • Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible
  • You can chose to be recognised as a donor or remain anonymous

The Foundation brings together a network of people who want to contribute to the future of this region. You can be part of this network by volunteering your skills and energy to one of the committees or providing pro bono support to our management or events.
