Reaching Out to Community

70 community organisations and 120 community capacity building projects have been supported across the shire, by the Foundation’s programs, since the Community Foundation for Tumut Region’s launch in 2004.

A list of local organisations helped by the Community Foundation is provided below.

The Community Foundation for Tumut Region has contributed over $450,000 to support local community strengthening projects and families in need.

Other programs included:
