WHO WE ARE
We are a Community Foundation that covers primarily the Noosa Region.
We act as a facilitator between donors and eligible charities. We are a Not-For-Profit run as a Company Limited by Guarantee.
Fundraising administration and caretaking of funds raised is carried out by a separate specialist funds manager. Donations to us can be tax deductible if desired. All Foundation staff are volunteers so all income goes to charitable purposes.
WHAT WE DO
We raise Donations
The Foundation raises tax-deductible donations in addition to assisting local charities to raise funds (MORE)
We Manage Bequests
NCF can accept bequests left in Wills and Memorials to remember loved ones. These are invested in perpetuity. Each year, the income is distributed to the charities specified by the donor (MORE)
We Service Charities
We help charities with their own fundraising and administration. They can then focus more on delivering their services where they are needed.
We Boost Impact
We strive to make charitable operations in the Noosa Region more efficient and to have more impact. Your donation goes even further.
We Support Youth
Our Scholarship programs help both disadvantaged and talented children get a better education and gain life skills.
Provide a helping hand
We group all charitable causes the Foundation is permitted to donate to into charitable Panels or groups of charities doing similar work. You can pick a Panel and we will allocate your donations in the most beneficial way between your chosen Panel members (MORE)
