Barossa Region Community Foundation Trust

Also known as “Foundation Barossa”, Barossa Region Community Foundation Trust is a small-scale charity established in 2003. Their main activity is registered as arts education primarily serving children - aged 6 to under 15 youth - 15 to under 25.

our mission is to enable community philanthropy for the economic, social and cultural prosperity of the Barossa Community. We achieved this through 2 Appeals, one to help financially disadvantaged Barossans at Christmas to put food on the table and provide gifts for children that might not otherwise receive one. We also had an Emergency Relief Appeal in response to COVID in the region.. We continue in partnership with FRRR to provide Back to School vouchers for disadvantaged children in the region, to provide basic school essentials. This ties to our values around dignity through disadvantage to ensure no-one is left behind. We received a grant from Wyatt in Fy 20 which allowed us to provide support to independent learners aiming to complete Year 12 despite some extraordinary situations. We launched the Dr Ben Baker Memorial sub-fund, which was supported by community donations to allow people financial assistance to study in the field of human health. We also continued to support young musicians through support with instruments and travel to band practice, also aimed at nurturing our community and allowing people to achieve their goals.
