The Foundation concept is simple … the Buderim Foundation:
receives donations and bequests – money in
carefully invests the funds to generate income – money managed
distributes income as grants to Buderim based community organisations – money out
The Buderim Foundation Fund currently stands at $1.9 million.
Since its launch in 2004, the Foundation has awarded grants 139 worth $459,443 to 77 community organisations in the 4556 postcode area and distributed $143,950 worth of Back-to-School vouchers… a benefit of over $600,000 to the Buderim community.
