Give the gift of local community leadership with a tax deductible donation

We are excited to launch our first Christmas giving appeal, and we hope you will consider making a donation.

The AVCL Annual Program has produced over 500 Alumni since its inception in 1999. These Alumni are the “why” of the program; they put in the effort not only for themselves, but for the broader benefit of our region. The strength of a community is made up of the sum of individuals within it, and it is essential that people can come together, increase their capacity, and be empowered and inspired to grow their communities.

Given we will no longer receive any Victorian State Government funding for the Annual Program, there is no better time to donate.

Your donation to Alpine Valleys Community Leadership Fund Ltd will go toward supporting scholarships, support and programs for individuals experiencing disadvantage within our community.

Since its inception in 1999, more than 500 local leaders have graduated from our Annual Program and gone onto deliver over 191,600 hours of unpaid volunteer work in our community.  Many of our Alumni work in community-focused roles, in addition to as providing critical volunteerism in our Northeast and Border communities.

With your donation we can continue to foster the development of a vibrant network of community leaders across North East Victoria, its Border regions and beyond.

Make a tax deductible donation to Alpine Valleys Community Leadership Fund Ltd today to provide equitable scholarships that enable continued development of our local, community leaders in 2024.

Alpine Valleys Community Leadership Fund Ltd has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. All donations are deemed tax-deductible absent any limitations on deductibility applicable to a particular taxpayer. No goods or services were provided in exchange for your contribution.

If you are interested in other opportunities to support AVCL, including sponsoring events such as a study tour, or  immersive retreat, please contact Executive Officer, Madeline Hines via to discuss.
