Together we can

Make Noosa a better place for everyone


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.

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.

We Rely on People

The Foundation is entirely powered by volunteers at every level.  More are always welcome.  Our Ambassador program draws on our network of residents to spread the word about how our services help the community (MORE)

We can’t make it alone. We need your help. Your small help can bring a big change.
