Community Foundations are about communities taking responsibility for themselves and caring for one another.
The Bungendore Community Foundation has become a very valuable and worthwhile Community asset providing support to the needy and an income stream to our volunteer groups. Their structure is simple. No members, no constitutions, no elections, no accounts, no auditors.
We are just a committee of like-minded people representative of our community who accept donations, do a bit of fund raising and operate two accounts, one being our welfare account with the Bendigo Bank and the other being our account with GreaterGood.
Utilising the infrastructure that is offered by GreaterGood in the form of accounting, auditing, funds investment, has made it possible for the foundation to be set up at no cost and with no running costs. This allows all monies raised in the community to go back into supporting their community.
