Who Are we?

Learn More About Peel Community Fund!

Originally established in 2008 as the Peel Community Foundation (PCF) we initially operated under the umbrella of the Western Australian Community Foundation (WACF) 

WACF, which was set up under a Federal Government “Fund for the Future”  program – served as a Trustee for 37 community  foundations across WA. 

In Peel an initial Regional Development Scheme donation of $100,000 from the Western Australia State Government ( through the Peel Development Commission), was provided to PCF. 

The inaugural launch of these funds in 2008 saw a further $100.000 donation from Alcoa of Australia.

The  purpose of the Peel Community Foundation was to support and strengthen the communities  of the Peel region by sourcing, growing and distributing endowed funds. These funds were aimed to support emerging needs in the region –  in the arts, cultural, social, educational, environmental and economic sectors.

Our Priorities

OUR aim is to partner with diverse donors and advocates to build a fund as a long-term community asset –  a permanent community endowment.

This means donor legacies are really created… forever!

By facilitating connections and collaborations we can bring together a ‘ whole of community’ approach to build the social capital and strengthen our region-by customising our approach to honour the diversity and geographical spread of our region.

By sourcing knowledge to identify and sustainably solve challenges and opportunities in our region we aim to  demonstrate flexibility-  funds can be directed  for real impact for real people in a real meaningful way monitoring of  needs.
