Australia’s community foundations

The Victorian Community Foundation, Australia’s first, was established in 1983 by the ANZ Bank Trustees and was not a traditional “community-owned” community foundation. The first public community foundation, in Tasmania, was established in 1995 and Melbourne followed in 1997.
