Individuals & Families

Join our community of giving

Australian Communities Foundation supports individuals and families across Australia to establish and activate their giving plans.

We offer three options for individuals and families looking to put a structure around their giving – all of which are tax-effective ways to create positive social change.

Why give with us?

Join a community

Join Australia’s largest national giving community and find inspiration through sharing knowledge, ideas and insights. You’ll meet people with their own philanthropic goals but with a shared vision for a fairer and more sustainable Australia.

Achieve your giving goals

Whether you establish a fund, foundation or Gumnut Account with us, we support you to achieve your giving goals by providing regular updates on granting opportunities, sharing the latest inspiring stories from our community, and giving you access to 30+ annual thought leadership events and Learning Circles for our five focus areas.

Maximise your impact

With collaboration being key to the community foundation model, we work with our nonprofit partners to identify needs and opportunities within communities across the country. That way we can be sure we are always supporting you to maximise the impact of your giving.
