The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation has provided financial support to Melbourne’s charities and public hospitals since 1923. The Foundation provides financial assistance and grants to charities that provide care and support for people who experience disadvantage.
The foundation holds an annual community luncheon involving the many charities located across Melbourne. The luncheon provides an opportunity to meet the people involved in these organisations and to reflect on the work provided by these charities through their staff and volunteers.
The Community Luncheon is an extremely well attended event and demonstrates how the Charitable Foundation has supported many of these organisations through philanthropy and grants.
