Mansfield Community Fund is a tax-deductable fund established in 2012 to benefit and strengthen the community of Mansfield for present and future generations. Its vision is to encourage and enable people to make charitable donations and to work together to build a stronger community through social fairness, cultural richness and economic and environmental sustainability.
The Community Fund is governed by a small group of local volunteers and is a sub fund of the Australian Communities Foundation, which ensures the highest standards of financial management, professional advice, auditing and administration.
MCF is a perpetual fund that is able to give grants and grow at the same time. Grants are mostly made from the interest earned. This enables the Fund to increase its support for the community year by year.
