Investing in Rural Communities

Welcome to the Rural Communities Trust


The Rural Communities Trust recognises that living in a rural community can mean facing barriers to education, health and other services.


Each year the Rural Communities Trust approves grants to individuals, families and groups with a diverse range of needs. So far, almost 1,000 grants have been approved, totalling well over $600,000.


Funds come from member organisations listed on the right (featuring clickable links).
