The Foundation Difference

The Denmark Community Foundation is a registered community charity that receives tax-deductible donations and bequests from the community.

Donations can go to a specific cause that you care deeply about or, if donated to the Denmark Community Fund, it will go toward an initiative within one of the Denmark Community Foundation focus areas:

Creating opportunities for youth

Building community wellbeing

Supporting our seniors

Where would you like to donate?

The denmark Community Fund

Your donation can go to the Denmark Community Fund which provides grants for projects that create opportunities for youth, support our seniors and build community wellbeing. 

The income generated from this carefully managed Fund provides a perpetual and growing source of grant funding for projects that meet the existing and emerging needs of the Denmark community.

 

the youth  Fund

You can directly support the next generation in our community through a range of flexible giving options that are tax-deductible.

The Youth Fund provides assistance to eligible Denmark residents aged 17-25 to:

Access local, confidential crisis support 

Undertake training courses to improve their job prospects

Overcome financial barriers that prevent them from participating in training

The denmark homeless Fund

You may have heard about efforts to help those in the community who are living rough or going through a very difficult time and find themselves without a home.

Your local community Foundation has partnered with the Denmark Homeless Project to handle donations and has already contributed $2,000 toward the purchase of a caravan for crisis accommodation to support those facing extremely challenging circumstances.

We rely on the generosity of community members to help those in need and support projects with wide reaching benefits.

Donations to these funds can be made at any time. If you are able to afford it, even a one-off donation of $20 or $50 will have an impact.

Denmark needs your help!
