Fundraising Support

Ready to fundraise for a cause you care about?

At Australian Communities Foundation, we’re here to support your fundraising goals.

For more than 25 years, we’ve been providing the infrastructure for people and organisations to fundraise for a diverse range of causes across Australia.

Establish a fund with us and gain access to our fundraising infrastructure, including online donations, tax-deductibility status and fundraising licences in every state and territory.

Fundraising with the Morgan Mansell Fund

The Morgan Mansell Fund is a fund that no parent would ever wish to set up: a memorial fund to honour the all-too-short life of their child. Knowing the positive impact Morgan had on the world is one of the things Julie and Peter Mansell say has helped them navigate their grief. Establishing the Morgan Mansell Fund is another. The Fund is designed to raise funds and make annual grants that support research associated with Morgan’s health issues.

“We draw upon the expertise of the Foundation… they enable us to undertake our fundraising activities in a manner that is completely above board and tax-deductible.” 

How establishing a fund with us can support your fundraising

Online donations

Our online donations portal provides a quick and easy way for donors to support your cause. You will be given login access to view your fund’s balance and donations history. We can also work with you to build a campaign on fundraising platform Raisely.

Fundraising licences

We’re licensed to fundraise in each Australian state and territory. Use our licences for your fund’s fundraising activities.


Our Deductible Gift Receipient 2 (DGR2) status enables your supporters to make tax-deductible donations to your cause.

No minimum establishment amount

We are dedicated to supporting all Australians to fundraise, especially those just getting started. That’s why we waive our minimum establishment amount when you commit to raising $10,000 in the first year.
