Donors are mainly long-term Buderim residents keen to give back to their community. Some give during their lifetime; some leave a bequest in their will and others make a donation in memory of someone dear to them (Gifts in Memory). The late David Edwards (picture above) was a man who believed in ‘philanthropy in kind’ and is remembered for his very generously donations of rare and valuable bottles of wine for raffles and Foundation events.
(The Foundation is currently seeking donations of art for an art auction to be held later in 2018. If you are able to assist please complete the attached form HERE.)
We have learnt that most of our donors are not motivated by recognition… in fact they actively avoid it. However, our 2018 Community Challenge donors have agreed to let us put their names on this web page in the hope that the list will motivate others to help the Foundation reach the 2018 Community Challenge goal of $2 million in the Fund (currently the Fund stands at $1.6m).
2018 Community Challenge update (April 2018)

And it’s important to remember that the Foundation is supported every year by its three major sponsors, Buderim Pharmacy, Edenlea on Buderim and Sunshine Toyota . It is their ongoing financial contribution that covers the Foundation’s annual administration costs.
