Frankston Charitable Fund
The Frankston Charitable Fund was established as a charitable fund account of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation in 2009.
The fund aims to build capital and generate interest and dividends that provide funding to support the work of Frankston charities through a grants program. The fund capital is preserved in perpetuity and is invested and professionally managed by the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation. The money that is donated today will stay in the Frankston Charitable Fund corpus forever.
All donations to the Frankston Charitable Fund are managed by the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation and proceeds are allocated locally.
You can make a donation securely online via the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation website or phone 9633 0000. Just remember to nominate the Frankston Charitable Fund under donation details. If you would like to discuss any other option, please contact the Frankston Charitable Fund, phone 1300 322 322.
You can make a regular donation to the Frankston Charitable Fund for as little as $1 or $2 per week or you may choose to make a larger, one-off donation - it's up to you. All donations of $2 or more are fully tax deductible and we appreciate any contribution.
You may choose to participate in a workplace giving program through your employer and direct your donations to the Frankston Charitable Fund. Workplace giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax, potentially reducing your taxable income. That means you receive a tax benefit immediately rather than having to wait until the end of the financial year. Contact your Payroll Officer to deduct your nominated donation from your gross (pre-tax) salary each pay period.
