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.

These Named Funds are recorded annually in the Foundation’s Annual Report unless anonymity is requested. Gifts made during a donor’s lifetime are tax deductible. A gift can also be made – or added to – through a bequest.

Funds with the following names have been established in the Foundation.
