exceed the grants awarded in 2018.

“Supporting our community is about more growth = more grants = more smiles!”, Ms Ramsay said.

“By investing in organisations serving the Buderim and 4556 community, we strive to support, protect and encourage great purposes such as assisting people to live healthy and fulfilling lives, encouraging cultural endeavours, increasing learning opportunities, protecting and preserving our natural environment and supporting youth in our community.”

The Buderim Foundation is a philanthropic organisation who harnesses the power of giving by generating income from donations and bequests and providing grants for worthwhile community projects.
