Our purpose is to build a stronger community

The Southern Highlands Community Foundation (SHCF) is on a mission to build a community that is kind and connected.  A community that is giving and helps those in need.  We do this by supporting initiatives that have lasting impact and generate hope which help our community continue to thrive.

Our point of difference

We use a data driven approach to determine the key areas most in need and measure our impact.  We are backed by data and a deep understanding of our community having helped build, support and grow community connection for 21 years.

Our people

As a registered charity and public foundation, we are governed by a board of directors.  Our directors are all respected members of the Southern Highlands community who generously donate their time to assist with the governance of the foundation.

Our location

The Southern Highlands Community Foundation works solely within the Wingecarribee LGA.
