Australia’s first Community Giving Day Big Give has been launched giving Central Victoria 24 hours to give where you live on the 1st September.  Bendigo Health Foundation, Otis Foundation for Breast Cancer Retreats, Golden Square CFA, Lifeline, Haven; Home, Safe and Women’s Health Loddon Mallee all threw their hats into the ring as participating organisations.

“I’m delighted to launch this important new initiative” said Barry Jones Chair of the Community Foundation’s Big Give Committee “This is a new way for us to support all sorts of different groups in Central Victoria from the Murray to the Macedon Ranges.”

We have raised $30,000 in prizes that will be awarded to Big Give fundraisers for innovation and effort.
