Those who give - Donors and Partners

Nothing we do could be achieved without the support of our donors and partners.

FRRR's mission requires us to build strong, sustainable partnerships to support rural, regional and remote communities. Anyone can give and every dollar counts - and whilst we can’t list each and every one of our donors, we are immensely appreciative of them all, their continued support for our programs and the genuine interest in the work that we do.

Without the generous support of our many donors - Trusts, Foundations, Corporations, Government Departments and Individuals - we could not achieve what we do. While we work with each of them in different ways - from running a program on their behalf, or collaborating to provide funding for programs addressing a specific rural issue - we value their support.

FRRR is also dependent on the many other philanthropic bodies, industry groups and individual influencers who help us to do our work. Similarly, we receive great support from many suppliers, and we appreciate the in-kind contributions they make, as well as the discounts they apply to their work.
