Give Where You Live (Geelong)
The organisation we now know as the Give Where You Live Foundation was initially formed in 1954 as the Geelong and District Community Chest, becoming United Way Geelong Region in 1979.
2011 saw the organisation become the Give Where You Live Foundation as a means of keeping all raised funds under our control and in the Geelong region. Since 1954 the Give Where You Live Foundation has been bringing individual donors, corporate supporters and community partners together to help our region’s most vulnerable people - to work together to Build Better Communities. At the core our mission is creating long term sustainable change for our most vulnerable community members. Integral to that is our ability to innovate, think and act with imagination and create strong regional partnerships. We seek to solve one of the most complex and entrenched social issues in our community – disadvantage. We do this by implementing program and providing grants.
