WHO ARE WE?
The Gold Coast Community Fund is an incorporated body that was established in early 2000 by some of the city’s leading business figures.
The Fund seeks to raise money through regular art unions and donations, creating a central pool of money for distribution to charities, community organisations and individuals in emergency need.
The Gold Coast Community Fund offers a more systematic approach to fundraising and the perfect fundraising solution for not-for-profit organisations large and small.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The Gold Coast Community Fund (GCCF) aims to relieve financial hardship which is determined on a case by case assessment of a beneficiary’s or charities genuine financial need.
Relief of financial hardship may include assistance for people who are suffering from the effects of homelessness, sickness or from a disability, where, in each case, there is also financial need.
Sickness comes within this category because sickness is often related to poverty or the inability for an individual to pay for treatment.
Financial assistance is only provided to those who reside within the Statistical Area only of the Gold Coast as determined by Queensland Concordance – SA4 to SA2 (ASGS 2011) as provided by QLD Government Statisticians.
The GCCF offers assistance only if directed and agreed to by its committee and decisions can be made on individual cases as required that may not fit the entire criteria.
Assistance may be offered more than one time but only after a reassessment and approval of its committee.
* Any assistance is at the absolute discretion at all times of the committee and its decision shall be final and without review. The committee will not be required to provide reasons for any decision to refuse any application.
