Explore the different ways that you can give through FRRR and make an impact.
Your support puts communities in control
FRRR is inspired and driven by the needs and abilities of the community. Our programs are designed to provide support for what they tell us they need. After all, they are on the ground, and they are best-placed to know what will really make a difference.
That’s why we ask our donors to consider supporting our core grant programs. Our flagship Strengthening Rural Communities program is flexible and allows communities to apply for funding for whatever they need – including the kitchen sink. But unfortunately, it’s the program where we have least discretionary funding – last year, we could fund only 30% of requests.
Where we most need support
Flood Recovery Appeal
FRRR stands ready to support community-led recovery from devastating floods impacting rural NSW and parts of QLD, with a particular focus on medium to long term needs. Learn more.
Disaster Resilience and Recovery Fund
This Fund ensures that FRRR can support community recovery, long after the headlines have faded. It also funds preparedness initiatives because communities that are better prepared recover better from a disaster event.
Networks to Build Drought Resilience
The Networks to Build Drought Resilience program aims to assist agriculture-dependent communities to take proactive steps to prepare and respond to future challenges.
Revitalising Rural Australia
COVID-19 has meant that most small community groups haven’t been able to fundraise through their normal channels. Help them continue to support their local communities, as we find a “COVID-normal”.
Following the catastrophic summer of 2019/20, the Strengthening Rural Communities (SRC) program has been expanded to offer funding to support recovery in bushfire-affected communities. Many needs are only now emerging, and will do for years to come.

Five reasons to donate to FRRR
FRRR is a charitable foundation whose vision is for a vibrant, resilient, and revitalised remote, rural, and regional Australia. In every action, FRRR seeks to further our vision – in our grant-making to not-for-profit organisations, conduit funding partnerships, insights, choice of investments, and choice of donor partners. FRRR acknowledges the tensions that exist in the social, economic, cultural, and environmental opportunities and threats to remote, rural, and regional communities. We act with ethical exclusions, and positive screens – and take steps to consider and articulate how each of our choices contributes to positive social, environmental, cultural, and economic change across remote, rural, and regional Australia.
“You have no idea how much this is appreciated. With the fire and everything, the things that are so needed are simple items as socks and underwear. The soot and dust goes through everything. Thanks you so much, not many people realise just what we are going through.”
