The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) has been established as a partnership between philanthropy, governments and business to stimulate rural and regional renewal in Australia.
FRRR encourages innovation and creativity in rural and regional communities. It delivers a range of grant programs, supports the development of regional community foundations, and uses seed funding and challenge grants to move regional development project funding into a more dynamic context. Read about key achievements in our online 2011/12 Annual Review.
We have specialised programs to assist communities recover from fires, floods and cyclones. In our experience it is important to support communities in the medium-to-long term, to fill the gaps left after government and relief agencies have stepped away and to help sustain momentum in community-led recovery efforts when volunteer fatigue sets in. If you want to donate to a disaster recovery program - you can do so online or contact our CEO to discuss a partnership or donation.
