Event description

The National Community Foundations Forum (NCFF) is Australia's premier conference for Community Foundation practitioners and other change-makers focused on place and local communities. It has been held annually for about 15 years.  

Co-hosted by Australian Community Philanthropy and the Fleurieu Community Foundation, this year the Forum will gather from October 29 - 31 in Goolwa in South Australia on the lands of the Ngarrindjeri people, the traditional owners of the lower Murray River, western Fleurieu Peninsula and the Coorong. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging.

This year’s Forum theme Better Together affirms the central role of collaboration and solidarity in community philanthropy. At the Forum, we will explore how we can work better with different partners to strengthen local impact for our communities, and how community foundations can work more closely together as a sector to amplify our collective voice and visibility.

The following are included in the cost of your ticket:

  • Morning and afternoon tea and lunch on every day of the Forum
  • Welcome reception
  • Forum dinner (Wednesday 30 October)
  • River excursion and site visits on Tuesday 29 October
