Since our inception in 2000, FRRR has distributed more than $66 million in grants to thousands of community groups across rural, regional and remote Australia. On average, for every dollar we invest, a further $3 are contributed either in cash or in-kind by the local community. For some communities, the leverage is even greater. This means that together with our fellow donors, at a minimum, we have helped to implement $260 million worth of projects, all of which enhance the lives of those living in rural, regional and remote Australia. Our organisation supports a wide range of areas of need, as well as supporting the fundraising efforts of local communities by facilitating the receipt of tax deductible donations for projects that benefit rural, regional and remote communities via Donation Accounts.
"We have found FRRR to be a wonderful umbrella organisation through which we have been able to efficiently donate to many small and worthy rural charities. We could not have done the research required to reach each one directly. FRRR’s reach, experience and approach makes it simple to make a difference where it matters" - Neville and Di Bertalli, Directors, Bertalli Foundation
