Give with us

Opportunities to give, partner and collaborate

Over 200 people and organisations have given through the Foundation in the last nine years and those funds have been carefully managed, targeted and monitored.  Our donors reflect the diversity of the community.  There are many ways you can be connected with the Foundation and bring money to life through place-based philanthropy. Get involved and:

1) Every dollar benefits our region

The Foundation is a safe pair of hands for donations – both small and large – to be invested and to have lasting local impact through grantmaking.  IntoWork Australia is our founder, and covers all operating costs and overheads.  This means that all money donated for the region can go to the communities, families and individuals we are here to support.

2) Create a legacy for families and communities in the inner north

Join the growing number of individuals, families and organisations who have established a sub-fund that reflects their sustained commitment to the inner north and express their priorities as a donor.

3) Increase the reach of existing programs by working together

The Portland House Foundation, Bendigo Bank, MP Consulting and the Scanlon Foundation have all built partnerships to contribute to the Pathways to Employment, Community Building Small Grants, Young Changemakers and other programs which improve the vitality and prosperity of our region.  People with more modest amounts are also giving through regular workplace donations, gifts in Wills, transfer of assets prompted by wind-up clauses and generally joining in the fun with fundraising events.

4) Share our expertise

The Foundation can point donors to opportunities to invest in our region, provide links to partnerships and programs,  and help bring money to life through place-based philanthropy .

5) Volunteer with us

Philanthropy is also about giving time and talent, or sharing networks and raising money and we welcome your involvement as part of our growing Foundation community.
