The Bayside Community Fund is aimed at strengthening the community by facilitating giving and by partnering with donors to build an enduring source of funding through a return on investment of the perpetual funding.

By donating and/or leaving a bequest to the Queensland Gives Bayside Community Fund you are helping create a legacy.  Future Baysiders will be supported by the fund’s dividends being made available via grants to eligible community groups to deliver grass roots services to the Bayside.

We are seeking a minimum base of $50,000 to ensure that together we can build a sustainable future for the Bayside community. Those who donate to the Bayside Community Fund can rest assured that their nest egg will be managed by an independent body, invested properly and gain compound interest for the long term betterment of the local area.

Structure and Governance

The Bayside Community Fund is a named sub fund under Queensland Gives. Queensland Gives provides the compliance and oversight of the bayside Community Fund; the investment strategy is managed by Queensland investment Corporation (QIC) and legal support by the Public Trustee. Being part of Queensland Gives is a low-risk, efficient and low-cost investment for the Bayside Community Fund.

The Local Committee

The committee is made of locals who live and work in the community. They liaise with local businesses and community stakeholders to encourage new contributions to the fund to ensure a robust, independent and well-governed community grants program, and to support community grant recipients in measuring the impact of the grant in the local community.
