Ways to give

If like us, you love where you live, then come and be part of a group that feels as passionate as you do about giving back to our community. With NRCF, your donation will impact local causes that matter to you. Support a cause you care about here.


As a not-for-profit organisation, NRCF relies on the generous support of volunteers both year-round in the office and on the Board, and during the year for our public and private events. We are always on the look out for motivated people who are passionate about giving back to our community. You could have a special skill or capability, or you just feel you want to help.

We have three volunteer programs here at NRCF.

Event volunteers

Our Event Volunteers work with NRCF's Fundraising Committee to deliver our public and private events throughout the year. It's a great way to get actively involved with the NRCF community, supporting donors, grant recipients and the NRCF team. If you are a people person, and like working in teams, this is a job for you!

Year-round office volunteers

Our Office Volunteers provide assistance in the office, supporting us in the areas of marketing, donor relations, grantmaking and administration.

Board and Sub Committees

NRCF is supported and goverened by the community, for the community. NRCF Directors and Committee members have knowledge and skills in specific or multiple fields, such as social impact, ethical investment, law, accounting, marketing, fundraising, governance, philanthropy, operations or grant making.

We believe in building strengths and capacity of our local people. If you are a skilled professional who does not have previous experience on a not-for-profit Board, but would like to actively make the Northern Rivers a better place, then a Sub Committee is the starting point for you!

NRCF Sub Committees are in five key areas of:

  • Development and Engagement
  • Finance and Audit
  • Governance
  • Grants and Community Impact
  • Investment

Gift Us

We are pleased to accept a range of items that can be transferred into funds after sale — everything from art, superior wines and property. We can also auction items at one of our events. Let us know if you can help.

Become a partner

It’s important to us that partners feel they have a stake in supporting initiatives and activities. We work with a range of partners in the region and from around the country who have chosen NRCF as their charity of choice, because we have the experience and programs to deliver impacts across the region — organisations like Haines family’s Portland House Foundation, The James Frizelle Charitable Foundation and the Vasudhara Foundation.

We are always looking for more partners to come on board so why not get in touch? If you are a new business starting out, then take a moment to think carefully about your impact on the region and community — we can help with some innovative ways to give back!
