The Manningham Community Fund supports and distributes funds to community organisations in Manningham and operates under the umbrella of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, which has been supporting charities across Melbourne metropolitan area since 1923.
The Fund is a separate legal entity from the City of Manningham. It aims to raise much-needed funds to help community organisations with Deductable 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 made 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
Applications for the Manningham Community Fund are currently closed and will reopen in 2020.
