What is the Brimbank Community Fund?

The Brimbank Community Fund was set up in 2009 as a sub-fund of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation (LMCF).

It exists to provide a permanent and growing source of much-needed investment for the Brimbank community. The fund tackles priority issues and contributes to the vision of Brimbank as a proud, diverse and connected community.

To date the Brimbank Community fund has dispersed grants totaling $45,000.

What does the Committee do?

They do this by working in partnership with local residents, businesses and charities to identify areas of need, grow a source of income and develop solutions to pressing local issues.
