Start your fund

While our community is diverse, we’re all connected by the desire to live in a prosperous, vibrant Inner North. We’re passionate about places and causes that align with our values and we feel a connection to.

A Named Fund is a perpetual investment that is protected and preserved, and as it grows over time the interest earned goes back into the community every year. Establishing a Named Fund is one way to ensure local community organisations and charities thrive for years to come.


Your giving can have real, long-term benefit. Now and forever.
Community Foundations Australia has developed a fund calculator to help demonstrate the impact of the community foundation model. You can adjust the initial fund size, annual distribution and average return (and even add a separate annual contribution amount) to model different scenarios 'in real time'. Note: this is not financial advice, and is for demonstration purposes only.
