United Way Ballarat

United Way Ballarat asks all the citizens of Ballarat and surrounding areas to do three things:

GIVE – money and goods, ADVOCATE - on behalf of those who cannot, VOLUNTEERto invest time in our community

  • Founded by local citizens in 1983 as the Ballarat District Community Fund to raise and distribute resources back to the community in the areas identified as most in need
  • Has distributed more than $3 million dollars to local community groups and agencies working to meet the needs of our community
  • Incorporates Volunteering Ballarat and the Ballarat Community Fund as the peak body for volunteering activity in the local area and the lead agency for corporate social responsibility including workplace giving
  • A member of the National and Global United Way Movement; a network of 4000 grass roots organisations across 46 countries who collectively raise and distribute more than $6 billion dollars every year back into their local communities

Today United Way Ballarat is working to advance the common good of our community by focusing on EDUCATION, INCOME and HEALTH.  These are the building blocks for a good life—a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

Volunteering Ballarat:

  • Advocates for and on behalf of volunteering in Ballarat and surrounding districts,
  • Creates and identifies opportunities for individuals, companies and organisations to participate in our community as volunteers, and
  • Builds the capacity of community organisations around volunteering

The Ballarat Community Fund:

  • Raises money from sponsorship, individual donations and payroll giving, and
  • Distributes that money back to the community via grants for community groups working to meet needs across the Education, Income and Health focus areas
