About Us

Since 1954, the Foundation has been working together with our partners to build better communities by delivering our won programs and providing grants to partner organisations working to deliver programs to address the effects of disadvantage on our community’s most vulnerable people.


A G21 region where all people are part of an inclusive and connected community and not limited by the effects of disadvantage.


We are a catalyst for social change through innovative philanthropic solutions to challenging social problems. We engage donors and build partnerships; undertake best practice grant making and provide visionary leadership to create common agendas.



We are committed to being honest, respectful, consistent and ethical in our behaviour, relationships and work.


We are accountable to our supporters, partners and the Geelong Community. We take responsibility for the stewardship of the funds we raise and will ensure our actions and reporting are transparent.


We strive to be the best we can be in all activities we undertake. Consistently questioning our service standards will help us achieve our ambition of continuous improvement.


We embrace the diverse nature of the Geelong community. We encourage new ideas and value all opinions as this will better inform our work and increase our connectedness to the Geelong region.


Innovation will be a key factor to our success. We will constantly strive for improved, efficient and effective methods of completing our work, engaging our partners and communicating with the community.


We are passionate about our work, creating sustainable improvement in people’s lives and supporting the Geelong community.
