Calling All Philanthropists and Businesses! Whittlesea Community Futures (WCF) Project Prospectus

"Are you a philanthropic organisation striving for a better world? Are you a business wanting to give back to the community that made you?
Get on board with the 'WCF Partnership Project Prospectus' (PDF - 3.36MB). Together, we can make a difference."

The WCF Partnership Project Prospectus is an innovative initiative of the WCF Partnership, which aims to strengthen collaboration between the philanthropic sector, community service organisations, government departments, businesses and local communities in addressing the major social disadvantages faced by the Whittlesea community. It includes 14 'high priority-high impact' community service projects developed collaboratively by the WCF Partnership. Each project focusses on one or more key social issue adversely impacting our community with the aim to improve community outcomes and avert long-term disadvantage. There are proposals for projects targeting family violence, mental health, young people, student engagement, people living with disabilities migrant and refugee communities, indigenous education and low income households, to name a few.

This initiative takes a proactive, partnership approach in driving and streamlining the philanthropic, government, and business investment in the community services sector in the City of Whittlesea. Such collaborative initiatives will strengthen existing community programs and add value to any new programs. This initiative is strongly supported by Australian Communities Foundation and Philanthropy Australia.

The WCF Project Prospectus...'Building a Better Future Together, a Prospectus to Address Disadvantage in the City of Whittlesea' was launched by the Whittlesea Community Futures (WCF) Partnership in May 2017 at the Parliament House, Melbourne. In attendance were Members of Parliament, various philanthropic entities, senior Government officials, major corporates, local businesses and more than fifty-five not for profit organisations.
