Community Development

We’re strengthening dairy communities. Gardiner Foundation’s Community Development portfolio invests in the people and communities of the dairy industry in Victoria. Gardiner provides support across the sector from students to emerging industry leaders. We support communities where people thrive and can create the future they want.

Small rural and regional communities within the Victorian dairy regions can find it difficult to source funding for community facilities, infrastructure and initiatives. By supporting the community, is not only beneficial for community spirit and connection but also essential to attract and retain people in Victoria’s dairy industry. Our investments harness the power of a community, as a whole, for the benefit of all.

The following active Community Development projects are being funded by Gardiner Foundation:
