The Glenorchy Community Fund Ltd exists to help local community groups to provide and create opportunities and services that benefit the people of Glenorchy, and build a stronger community.
With the assistance of the Glenorchy City Council the Glenorchy Community Fund was officially launched in June 2010 under the umbrella of the Australian Communities Foundation (ACF) by the then Mayor, Adriana Taylor. A local volunteer Advisory Committee was responsible for the promotion and fund-raising activities of the Glenorchy Community Fund.
Monies donated to the Glenorchy Community Fund were deposited into a tax-deductible Fund at the ACF while those raised through fundraising activities were put into a non-tax deductible ACF Fund. The earnings of both of these Funds were made available as grants for programs and projects beneficial to the Glenorchy Community.
In 2014 the Glenorchy Community Fund matured into a Company Limited by Guarantee and is now a listed charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC) in its own right. Members of the Advisory Committee became the founding members of the new company and the Directors of its Board. Hon Adriana Taylor is the Chair of the Board of Glenorchy Community Fund Ltd (GCF Ltd).
The GCF has applied for “Deductible Gift Recipient” (DGR) status so donations made to GCF Ltd in future will be tax-deductible.
People can be assured that all funds raised by The Glenorchy Community Fund are safe and invested wisely to benefit the community.
We’ve also set up a “Friends of the GCF” network for people who want to help us grow the fund and the good work we are doing for the community.
