Queensland Community Foundation (QCF) is giving away a record amount of money to Queensland charities and non profits in the 2023/24 financial year.
Queensland charities can apply for up to $150,000, over several grants in the current QCF grant, part of a $5 million dollar windfall for the sector.
Queensland Community Foundation was founded in 1997 by the late, former Queensland Premier the Honourable Mike Ahern AO with just $300,000. Today the charitable trust holds $124 million dollars set aside to help Queensland charities, forever.
To date QCF has distributed $34 million dollars to Queensland charities all over the state, from Coolangatta to The Cape to Cunnamulla, funding the critical work of Queensland charities in their local areas.
Many well known and much loved Queensland charities have benefited from perpetual QCF funding include Cancer Council Queensland, RSPCA Queensland, The Salvos, yourtown and Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland.
There are also dedicated regional grant programs in Toowoomba, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Northern Queensland and charities operating in these regions can apply for an additional $30,000 in each area.
“We know that local organisations are best placed to serve and support their community. They have a deep understanding of the localised needs and take a place-based approach in supporting Queenslanders.” Tara Castle CEO of QCF said. “Please tell a Queensland charity you know about this funding today”.
