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 March 2018

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

Wally Bradley Quiz night

The annual Wally Bradley Quiz night will be run this year on Friday the 25th of May in a joint function with the Rotary Club of Encounter Bay.

We are really looking forward to having our Grand Quiz Master, Peter Lewis, come up with some fresh questions but if you are intending to put a team together we highly recommend you brush up on Port Adelaide Footy Club history, Horse Racing history and music from the 60s & 70s (especially Roy Orbison and Neil Diamond.

The Wally Bradley Education Award aims to support young people aged 16 – 19 years of age living in Victor Harbor, or with a close association with Victor Harbor, who show commitment in their field of education or training, but who may be experiencing difficulty in continuing their studies due to hardship or disadvantage.

The Award is based on access and equity. It is not intended to be a merit award that only recognises academic achievement.

The award is normally released in October of every year.

Stay in Sport grants

The Fleurieu Community Foundation works closely with local sporting clubs on the Fleurieu to ensure our young people remain engaged with their community through sport participation.

The Stay in Sport grants aim to provide assistance to junior sports participants on the Fleurieu, who would otherwise drop out of playing sport in their communities due to disadvantage or financial hardship, and who are unable to afford compulsory club fees, uniforms &/or sports equipment.

The objective of the program is to encourage continuity in community engagement and participation. The program focuses on inclusivity in sports for all young people regardless of ability and financial means.

It is important to understand that it is the sporting club that must apply on behalf of all young athletes at their club who are not in a position to fully fund the financial requirements of their involvement. Individual players and/or their familes are welcome to approach the Foundation to clarify eligibility for Stay in Sport but it will be the club who makes the application.

There are two grant rounds every year. The winter grants round is open through April-May. The summer grants round is open through October-November.

Please follow the link below for more information including an Expression of Interest application -

Please note that Primary School age children may also be eligible for the State Government sponsored sports vouchers and consequently may be eligible for both levels of financial support.

Yankalilla District Young Adult Award

The Fleurieu Community Foundation recently joined with members of the Yankalilla community to launch the Yankalilla District Young Adult Award.
The Award is a new grant steam established by the Fleurieu Community Foundation in partnership with the Yankalilla Community. The Award has a specific focus on the Yankalilla area and compliments existing awards in other areas of the Fleurieu. The Award aims to provide support to young adults aged 18 to 21 years, who are living in the Yankalilla District Council area or have a close association with the Yankalilla District Council area.  
The Award’s main purpose is to support young adults who show initiative and commitment in their field of education or training but who may be experiencing difficulty in continuing their studies or accessing other education or training due to hardship or disadvantage.
The Fleurieu Community Foundation has allocated $5,000 towards the new award from its existing financial resources and is actively partnering with the Yankalilla community to raise an additional $5,000 before the first grant is made.
It is hoped this is an exciting new phase in the development of grants to address disadvantage on the Fleurieu.
