The Cardinia Foundation is a philanthropic community foundation, raising funds for local community groups throughout the Cardinia Shire, with funds dispersed through an annual grants program.

The foundation aims to support the social, community and general welfare of those living in the Cardinia Shire region. The foundation provides grants to projects that support the growing needs of its communities, now and into the future.

If a community crisis such as Bushfire, flood or emergency the Cardinia Foundation will consider grant requests outside of the usual granting period. Prior consent is required from the Executive Officer, please telephone to discuss your application prior to submission.

If you are a representative of a not-for-profit Community Organisation or Charity and would like to receive Grants information please use the contact form
