Our Donors, Our Partners

Our founding members, the Commonwealth Government of Australia and the Sidney Myer Fund, believed that philanthropy can play a vital role in enhancing environmental, built and social assets for community and economic development in rural, regional and remote Australia. They were right and we are grateful that both organisations remain closely involved, supporting us and rural communities in many ways.

FRRR works with donors and partners in many different ways – from running a program on their behalf, to collaborating on programs addressing a specific issue, or simply sharing our expertise and networks. Similarly, we receive great support from many suppliers, via in-kind contribution and applying discounts, which is an enormous help.

We are deeply grateful to all 150+ of our very generous donors and partners who collaborate and trust in us that we can help them achieve their giving goals. Of course, we always welcome more donor partners, so please get in touch if you would like to join us.


"My family's Foundation, the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation, has worked with FRRR to channel support towards important projects in rural, regional and remote Australia. This is where FRRR comes into its own. FRRR staff know the communities, the organisations and it's great that they are able to team up with ABC to bring ideas from the next generation to life."

“FRRR gives us the opportunity to work with a trusted and credible partner. The FRRR team has networks, influence and experience which help us disseminate our funds in a far more cost effective and efficient way than we can achieve on our own. FRRR acts as a conduit, enabling us to support rural, regional and remote communities in a professional manner with insight and empathy.”
