As Greater Melbourne’s community foundation, Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation has been supporting the health and economic impact of COVID-19, including through expanding online community services and through treatment research.

Our Build Back Better campaign supports critically important charitable and health organisations. Building back better is about a more sustainable and inclusive Australia – a recovery which includes the construction of more affordable housing, creating employment in low carbon jobs, and encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit through social enterprise growth and development.
We will continue to respond to the COVID‑19 challenge and, with your assistance, we can help support the amazing charitable organisations leading our recovery and supporting people facing health and economic challenges. 
We are all in this together and it will take an all of community response to overcome COVID‑19 and its impact on all aspects of our lives.

Help build back better and donate today.
