Building Community. Creating a Legacy.
Sunshine Coast Foundation provides stable and sustainable financial support to charitable organizations from Port Mellon to Egmont. They offer donors the opportunity to increase their impact by pooling the gifts they receive and carefully investing them. Each year, they use the earnings on their investments to provide funding to local charities. They help to connect donors with the causes that inspire them and the charities that are having the greatest positive impact. The Sunshine Coast Foundation’s Vital Signs program compiles current and relevant research to help local organizations and decision-makers understand the issues and trends facing the Sunshine Coast community.
Each year, the Foundation awards more than $200,000 in grants to local Sunshine Coast charities. Since 2005, it has contributed more than $1.9 Million to our community. Several granting streams match different organizational needs. Help them contribute to the quality of life on the Sunshine Coast by making a gift to an existing endowment, starting one of your own, or leaving a bequest in your will.
