The Kingston Charitable Fund was established in February 2007 as an initiative of Kingston City Council in partnership with The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation. The Fund aims to support charitable organisations that meet community needs, make the community stronger and more connected, and complement Council’s activities in the community.
The Kingston Charitable Fund raises money from businesses and philanthropic communities within the City of Kingston. All money donated to the Fund goes into a perpetual account, managed by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, which generates a lifetime income. This interest is dispersed each year to Kingston Community Charities via our Kingston Charitable Fund Grants Program.
Since its inception, the Kingston Charitable Fund has raised more than $1.2 million and assisted over 50 local organisations with $475,000 worth of grants to vital community projects.
