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.

Workplace giving donations are deducted from your salary before tax, potentially reducing your taxable income.
