“It is a great privilege to be able to support the Greater Shepparton Foundation do its fantastic work for the broader Shepparton community. I have seen first-hand the work the foundation does, the outcomes are exceptional and mean so much to those who most need it. Shepparton is a place very near and dear to my heart. I spent many happy days in my youth enjoying Shepp life.”– Radek Sali
Greater Shepparton Foundation (GSF) has a mandate to significantly reduce complex soci-economic disadvantage in Greater Shepparton and surrounds.
Our focus is to support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community. We draw on local knowledge and source expertise from far and wide, to fulfil our core purpose – to be the connector of resources and skills to meet unmet need in our community.
Our community is proud, resilient and innovative. But data is revealing pockets of entrenched disadvantage throughout our region.
We are reimagining a future for some of the country’s most vulnerable children and families. We are tackling complex issues such as unemployment, educational aspiration among our youth, early childhood development and homelessness.
Our vision is to have “no-one living with disadvantage in Greater Shepparton”. We want to make sure that we live in a community where no-one is left behind.
GSF works as a driver of change through its own innovative initiatives, and supports community based organisations that align with the foundation’s purpose.
GSF is a Public Benevolent Institution with DGR1 tax status and presents significantly enhanced philanthropic opportunities for our community.
Our desire to support and work in partnership with the Greater Shepparton community will enable inspiring change. Consultation and collaboration, strong leadership and connection, and of course meaningful action on community impact initiatives, will lead to a whole of community plan with an enduring impact on disadvantage in this region.
We undertake this mission with Respect. We foster Inclusion, Collaboration and Trust.
