The Northern Rivers Community Foundation connects people and communities to tackle tough, urgent social and environmental problems in the Northern Rivers.
As a community foundation, donations are invested year after year. Only the profits are given away each year in the form of grants. NRCF is building a sustainable legacy for the future. The more you give, the more impact we can have.

Longer lasting impacts
Together we are building a legacy for the future of our community. The more you give, the more we can grant, and the more impact we can have.
Choosing where you give is a very personal decision. We know you want your gift to make the biggest difference possible. We help you make decisions that match your interests as an individual, family or group with the important and pressing needs of the community.
Give where you live
If like us, you love where you live, you can be part of a group that feels as passionate as you do about giving back to our community. Your donation can reach across the whole Northern Rivers region.
Since 2004, the Foundation has granted $1,404,427 across the seven shires of the Northern Rivers. 250 grants across 95 organisations undertaking social, cultural and environmental projects in this region.
Amounts from $500 to $30,000 have been given to individual projects.
There are many ways you can be part of the caring community of like-minded people supporting the activities of the Foundation. You could have a special skill or capability, or you just feel you want to help.
