Grant Stories

Totally Renewable Yackandandah Grantee Story

Janelle Marsden Mt Buffalo Chalet & High Country Comeback

Australia is set to encounter the largest intergenerational transfer of wealth in history over the next 50 years. This will happen, in part, as baby boomers get older and pass on their assets to loved ones. The huge transfer of wealth presents a major opportunity for rural and regional communities in particular to have a new conversation about how they can unlock these assets for community benefit.

Into Our Hands Community Foundation is exploring what our futures might look like if more of us were to contribute some of our assets, or wealth, back into local projects to create a lasting local legacy beyond our lifetime.
