The Yulgilbar Foundation Fund

The Yulgilbar Foundation Fund supported communities in the Clarence Valley and surrounding regions who had a desire and need to strengthen their capacity and resilience in response to the 2019/20 bushfires, flooding and continued challenges across the region.

It helped to:

  • Build organisational and community capacity;
  • Develop or extend education and employment pathways;
  • Leverage artistic endeavours; and
  • Support locally-led environmental sustainability initiatives.
