Red Earth is a community foundation you can trust

IF YOU are feeling charitable, there are a number of ways you can help the South Burnett community.

One way, a favourite option for many local businesses, is by donating to the Red Earth Community Foundation.

Red Earth helps redistribute money to where the community needs it most.

By donating to this foundation or supporting and sponsoring its endeavours, you can help build new community leaders through Red Earth's leadership programs and alumni workshops.

The foundation also uses crowd funding to raise support, a method it used at the 2018 Red Pitch crowd funding event.

At this event, according to the Red Earth website, more than $9700 in pledges were promised for community causes like drought support and Centacare workshops.

The Red Earth Community Foundation website also identifies different methods of donation, such as regular giving and leaving bequests, and you will soon have the option of contributing to a public ancillary fund.

Ken Mills from Ken Mills Toyota is one business representative who stands by this foundation, as he believes it's good to have a community foundation you can trust.

If you are interested in making a donation, or would like to find out more information, be sure to visit the website.
