Donate to the Manningham Community Fund

Donating to the Manningham Community Fund enables us to offer grants to charitable organisations to create a positive change in the community.

The fund is a separate legal entity from the City of Manningham.

It aims to raise much-needed funds to help community organisations with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR)* status that support people living in Manningham. It does this by encouraging tax-deductible donations, gifts and bequests that build up the fund corpus in perpetuity. Each year the fund earns income (in the form of interest) which can then be available to the community in the form of grants.

* A deductible gift recipient (DGR) is an entity or fund that can receive tax-deductible gifts.
