This festive period, we are encouraging our community to come together to ensure a thriving Melbourne for all.

Melbourne is an ambitious city – ambitious in its culture, infrastructure, events and philanthropy.

While Melbourne’s given so much to so many, more must be done.

Melbourne is a generous city and often described as one of the most livable. But there are large inequalities and disadvantages facing our community across homelessness, food insecurity, economic opportunities and climate resilience.

How can we ensure that our future is the one we want and that no Melburnian is left behind?

As the community foundation for Greater Melbourne, our role is to collectively address the big social and environmental challenges facing our community, responding to economic inclusion, community resilience, homelessness, and climate change.

But we cannot do it alone.

Your donations ensure we can continue this vital work across the areas of highest need.

Together, we can make Melbourne thrive.
