Shepparton and its successful response to the challenges of COVID-19 is the theme of the podcast and we are delighted to be featured alongside The Fairley Foundation and many wonderful community members and workers who made a difference during the crisis.

“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 via consultation and collaboration, strong leadership and connection, and meaningful action.
We undertake this mission with Respect. We foster Inclusion, Collaboration and Trust.
Greater Shepparton Foundation acknowledges it operates on the lands of the Yorta Yorta and Bangerang peoples. We thank the traditional owners for the opportunity to serve the community on their country. We honor and pay our respect to Elders and leaders, past, present and emerging. Through meaningful and genuine relationship, we will endeavor to put First Nations’ People first. We respectfully use the term “First Nations’ People” to honour all First Nations’ People who benefit from our activities and live on the Yorta Yorta and Bangerang.
