Making a Difference:
$200,000+ in grants to support rural and regional communities
Over the 2018/19 Financial Year Aussie Farmers Foundation, with the generous support of our donors, provided grants totalling more than $200,000 to fund vitally important projects in rural and regional communities across Australia.
The majority of funding supported drought-impacted farming communities, including a partnership with Australia’s largest food relief organisation, Foodbank Australia, to provide hampers for people experiencing food insecurity and Lifeline Gippsland’s innovative Farmer Mentor Program.
