Our Donors, Our Partners
FRRR works with trusts, foundations, government departments and businesses in many different ways – from collaborating on programs addressing a specific issue with some, to working together to pilot an idea or focus on a particular area, running a program on their behalf or simply sharing our experience and networks to ensure funds are directed where they are most needed.
We are deeply grateful to the nearly 600 generous donors and partners who trusted in us to achieve their giving goals. This included more than 400 individual donors, who collectively gifted over $900,000.
We also received incredible support from in-kind contributions and suppliers applying discounts, which is an enormous help for both FRRR and the grassroots community groups we support. Of course, we always welcome more donor partners, so please get in touch if you would like to join us.
"What a great program this is. It helps rural groups, such as ours, to create the facilities that bring our isolated and less socially active community members together to enjoy each other's company, learn and impart skills, promote their health and wellbeing, and have a bit of fun as well."

"Granting through FRRR provides John T Reid Charitable Trust with the opportunity to find groups who would not be eligible to apply directly to the Trust. It is really pleasing to read the reports from FRRR and the efforts made by local communities and outside volunteers."

“For 15 years now, ANZ has partnered with FRRR to deliver the ANZ Seeds of Renewal program. This program exemplifies ANZ’s purpose to shape a world where people and communities thrive and also aligns to FRRR’s goal to strengthen rural, regional and remote communities.
Throughout this partnership, FRRR has provided expertise in grant management processes to assist ANZ to support the most deserving projects that will provide the greatest benefit to the communities in which our customers live and work. I’m proud of ANZ’s long-standing investment in the Seeds of Renewal program and gratefully acknowledge the contribution of FRRR in successfully delivering this program."
