Want To Get Involved?

In 2024, we are delivering 11 programs, not including our shorter skills development workshops. While we haven’t yet completed our work, we reasonably estimate that we will deliver:

  • 1,000 hours of individual capacity building and leadership development to
  • 130 individuals, and
  • 55 community groups across
  • 10 different local government areas within North East Victoria, Southern and Border NSW regions.

This work is made possible through our partnerships and grant funding arrangements with a range of organisations, including Border Trust, Into Our Hands Community Foundation, Foundation for Regional and Rural Renewal, Emergency Recovery Victoria, Upper Murray Inc, North East Catchment Management Authority, the Australian Government and Kyamba Foundation. We have also benefited from grant funding from June Canavan Foundation and FRRR, enabling us to explore the philanthropic landscape and consult within our communities to understand our role in shaping positive outcomes and creating impact for the diversity of people that call this region home.

While we work within our communities to facilitate individual and collective capacity building, we continue to seek out opportunities to ensure the viability of AVCL into the future. This includes increasing our efficiencies, undertaking fundraising activities and maintaining strong relationships across a range of industries and sectors. A key component of our viability includes offering opportunities for investment in our organisation. With your help, we can continue to deliver high-quality programs and services that make a significant difference in the communities of those we serve.

Your organisation can:

• Provide foundational funding to our organisation that can support our essential operational overheads, maintenance of our systems and infrastructure, and provide security and investment in our most valuable resource — our people
• Support a participant to increase their leadership capacity through a workplace sponsorship or scholarship
• Offer expert and engaging speakers who can present on topics relevant to a specific program
• Provide a venue and/or catering
• Provide commercial donations in kind
• Partner with us to bring high-level leaders to the region as guest speakers
• Engage AVCL to deliver your next capacity building program or workshop
• Provide a grant that enables the delivery of a new course
• Attend our leadership events
