Named Funds are a growing way philanthropists can give to the Geelong Community Foundation. The gift in these cases can carry the name of the donor or the donor’s family. The name may honour someone or preserve the memory of a family member, friend, pioneer or outstanding citizen.
Named Funds often bear the name of the family or of a significant person or business. There are more than 100 named funds in the Foundation.
You can establish your own named fund for as little as $10,000. Donor advice is encouraged and is used to target issues of interest to donors, aligned to targeted areas of need in the community.
Donors can remain anonymous or choose their level of involvement and profile. Opportunities will be made to donors to attend forums, grant presentations and information sessions.
Please contact our Foundation staff to discuss any aspect of our work or your donation.
