For over twenty years, the Mumbulla Community Foundation, in partnership with Bega Valley Shire Council, has provided annual Community Grants to help improve the economic, environmental, social and cultural wellbeing of people in the Bega Valley Shire.  

Of the funding available, Bega Valley Shire Council contributes $25,000 annually to address the themes of the Community Strategic Plan. The remaining funds are raised by the Mumbulla Community Foundation's membership, voluntary donations, fundraising activities and grant funding. For 2022 significant funding is available through the Federal Government’s Black Summer Bushfire Recovery program ($80,000) and from Global Giving’s Australian Wildfire Fund ($17,000).

This will make $122,000 available across the Bega Valley to support the Bega Valley Community in recovery from the Black Summer Bushfires and/or build resilience to any such future event. Recovery can take many forms and be delivered in a variety of ways. The aim here is to build local connections and relationships after a traumatic event.

Applications for 2022 open 9am 1 November 2022 and close 5pm 30 November 2022.

The Mumbulla Community Foundation grants provide funding to charitable and not for profit organisations for projects that benefit people living in the Bega Valley Shire. Its primary objective is to help locally based groups who are providing and/or creating opportunities and services which may not be readily available in the Valley. They include those providing valuable services for the aged, disabled, youth, families, children and other people in need, as well as those involved in arts and cultural activities, organisations concerned with education, community learning and the region’s heritage and environment.

Mumbulla Community Foundation grants are targeted to address the priority needs identified in Council’s Community Strategic Plan and in line with the goals of Mumbulla Community Foundation.
