Investing in our Community's Future
It is estimated that Manningham residents donate in excess of $3.5 million per annum to charity. However, most of these donations do not necessarily directly benefit the local community.
The Manningham Community Fund has been established by the City of Manningham, in partnership with the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation, which has distributed more than $55 million to charity since its inception in 1923.
The Manningham Community Fund is a perpetual fund. The earnings on the principal will be distributed to charities to assist them in carrying out projects that benefit disadvantaged residents of Manningham.
Your donation to the Manningham Community Fund is an investment in the future of Manningham and will assist Manningham’s community organisations to deliver community support and welfare services to those who most need it.
All gifts to the Manningham Community Fund of $2 or more are tax deductible.
