Events & Appeals

There’s lots of ways that you can help us make a difference to people in the Ballarat community.

All of the funds raised through Ballarat Foundation appeals and events support our work in driving positive community outcomes in Ballarat and surrounds.

Our key events are Dancing with our Stars, held annually in June/July and Run for a Cause, conducted annually in November.

The foundation became the steward of the annual Ballarat Winter Appeal and Ballarat Christmas Appeal in June 2022. Both appeals are proudly supported by 3BA 102.3FM.

Ongoing appeals supported by the Ballarat Foundation include Feed Ballarat and the Housing Support Fund. Further details about the community events and fundraising activities of the foundation can be found below.
