Approved projects will need to be for charitable purposes in the Fleurieu region with a focus on community health and wellbeing, community development, education, environmental and cultural projects.

FCF Half Yearly Report

Although all of our recent Annual reports are available from our website they are often very businesslike documents prepared specfically for use at an Annual General Meeting. Therefore the Board has recently prepared a half yearly report to provide anyone with up to date information on what the Foundation has been doing and where they might move in the future.

This document is available through the following link -

FCF Half Yearly Report - August 2018

We hope to update this document and make it available twice yearly. So please keep an eye out for future reports.
