Donations to the Cardinia Foundation are tax deductible. Helping community organisations to deliver projects which make a real difference, to the lives of many and build a healthy and resilient community in the Cardinia region.


There are many ways you can raise funds to help your local Community Foundation. Fundraising is as easy as setting up a unique fundraising page on social media or using one of many portals, creating a page with your story and picture, then sharing with family, friends and colleagues.

Regular Giving

You can make regular donations weekly, monthly or annually to the Cardinia Foundation, providing sustainability into the future.   Your ongoing gift assists us in planning for the future, with a regular income we can be sure your funding is available to provide a lasting impact.

Create Your Own Event

Why not create your own event with family, friends or work colleagues. A dress-down Friday, morning tea, ladies lunch or perhaps a school uniform day?  Let your imagination explore ways you can assist and support the community in which you live.

In Celebration

Whether your celebration is a birthday, anniversary, wedding or other special time in your life, you can give the gift of giving!  Having a wedding anniversary celebration and have most things?? Why not think about the Cardinia Foundation as a charity for your party guests to support.

In Memory

Donations in memory of a loved one can leave a lasting legacy in your community.  Rather than flowers at a funeral, your friends and family can donate a gift and leave a special message about your loved one.

At Work

Your organisation can support the community you work in by fundraising. Fundraising at work can build your teams connectivity and be as simple as a dress down Friday or morning tea.

At School

School fundraising can include; Uniform free day, Run the Tan, Swimathon, Step challenge to get fit over a month or a week, Back pack distance challenge, Read-athon, Skipping challenge and more!  Children love supporting a cause and it teaches them about the needs of others and that they can make a difference.

Challenge Yourself

For the more adventurous you can do your own thing, sky dive, set a physical challenge over a month – what about taking on 10,000 steps a day and ask friends and family to sponsor you? Do it your way!
