About the organisation

Organisation Name : Australian Communities Foundation

We’re an independent, charitable foundation working with hundreds of everyday philanthropists to address social issues and create positive, community-led change.

We connect those who can give with those driving positive change. We are currently home to more than 350 funds and foundations, led by families, individuals, groups and organisations from across Australia.

Founded in 1997, we have since grown into one of Australia’s largest community foundations with a unique national focus. Each year, we disburse more than 900 grants totalling roughly $12.5 million.

At ACF, we foster a supportive, collaborative, and flexible team environment. You will have the opportunity to be involved in projects that make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. We are an organisation built on strong values: inclusion, agency, courage and fairness. We believe in a fairer Australia – one where social, environmental and cultural justice is the norm, and you should, too.
