A rural NSW grantseeker is proving that philanthropic investment in people and skills can produce a huge return on investment – bringing in more than $2.4million in grants for his community.
Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal
The know and how to ensure the long-term vitality of rural and remote Australia.
While drought is out of the media spotlight, for many communities it is still a very real and significant issue. FRRR’s Tackling Tough Times Together (TTTT) program has just awarded $86,083 to nine community initiatives in remote, rural and regional communities across Australia still dealing with the impacts of drought.
Two free capacity building workshops for people volunteering or working in Bega Valley’s not-for-profit and community sector are now available, thanks to FRRR’s Investing in Not-for-Profit Capacity in Regional NSW program.
Heartbeart of Rural Australia Research Study
In September 2021, FRRR commissioned the Heartbeat of Rural Australia study, exploring how not-for-profits and community groups in remote, rural and regional Australia are faring, in the wake of nearly two years of constant disruptions. The study was undertaken through The Xfactor Collective Foundation, by specialist member Survey Matters.
Annual Review 2020-2021: Adapting and Evolving
Our 2020/2021 Annual Review is a reflection on an incredible year of adapting and evolving to support remote, rural and regional communities. While we are proud of what we have achieved as a team despite the challenges of COVID-19, it really speaks volumes about the tenacity and commitment of local leaders in these communities, who continued to help their communities adapt to whatever nature sent their way, including, for many, recovering from the 2019/20 Black Summer bushfires.
Thank you to all the individuals from community groups and not-for-profits in remote, rural and regional Australia who shared their insights in our research survey. You can explore the findings now.
Once again, FRRR is ready to support the recovery of communities across rural Australia that have been affected by the flood emergencies this year. Can you contribute?
Our SRC program provides flexible funding so community leaders can address whatever issues they face. This could range from enhancing local community meeting places to providing resources for a kinder, or even transport for the elderly.
Together, we can achieve incredible results
including more than…
for disaster projects
for learning, education
for building community
