The Ballarat Foundation is an experienced and trusted community foundation servicing the Ballarat community. Our sub funds are the lifeblood of our approach to creating a positive impact.

Ballarat Foundation community grants are supported by donations and gifts in wills held in sub funds. These sub funds are pooled and invested with the income generated used to support positive community outcomes parochially in the Ballarat region.

The community foundation model seeks to create legacy giving which delivers ongoing positive impact. It enables all community members to contribute to creating a better Ballarat.
