Gold Coast Community Fund
Established for more than 16 years, the Gold Coast Community Fund (GCCF) seeks to raise funds through a variety of initiatives creating central funding for distribution to charities, community organisations and individuals in need of ongoing and emergency support. These recipients are wide-reaching and include national organisations with local branches such as, but not limited to, Rotary, Rosie’s, Act for Kids and Blind Citizens Australia.
The headline fundraiser for the GCCF will be the GC2018 Charity Gala, to be held on 4 November at The Star, Gold Coast.
This was an opportunity to give back to the people of the city that is delivering the Games, by supporting those in need across a very broad range of charitable, educational and recreational areas of the community. It is also indicative of the faith GOLDOC has in GCCF to support local individuals and groups in need but to also ensure a triple bottom line legacy from GC2018.
If you know a charitable organisation with a Gold Coast presence or Gold Coast programs, that may be eligible to receive some of the funds raised through GC2018 initiatives, please encourage them to apply, via the GCCF’s website at www.gccommunityfund.org
