Grain Grower Donations
The Foundation now has an NGR number, making it easy for growers to donate a small portion of their grain deliveries to the Foundation. Such donations will become part of the Foundation’s corpus in perpetuity, so that earnings on the corpus can be distributed year after year as grants to community groups on Eyre Peninsula. If you’re a grain grower and are considering putting a small quantity of grain at the end of harvest to a good cause, then the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation may be just the right choice to make.
EPCF Short Documentary
A short documentary on the work of the Foundation has been prepared under the Community Voices program by Flinders University.
The Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation (EPCF) wishes to partner with businesses and individuals that have a desire to support their local Eyre Peninsula (EP) community through philanthropy. The EPCF was incorporated in 2004 through the support of the Eyre Regional Development Board and a steering committee. A grant from the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal further assisted the establishment of a foundation on the Eyre Peninsula. In late 2008 a board of directors was appointed and an inaugural board meeting took place. Since then the Foundation has been working hard growing its corpus of funds to almost five hundred thousand dollars while forging exciting partnerships with businesses and charities. These partnerships have already delivered substantial benefits to the community with the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation distributing in excess of fifty five thousand dollars to community groups right across the EP.
