The Yulgilbar Foundation Fund

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

It will help to:

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

This program is now open.
EOIs close at 5pm AEST, Monday 12 April 2021.
