Introduction

Established in 1987, the Melbourne Anglican Foundation was the inspiration of Archbishop David Penman who thought it was critical that the Diocese look for new ways to raise funds for future ministries. An initial seventy-five members paid a joining fee which made up the corpus on which the Foundation was built.

The corpus is invested by a board of directors and provides an income stream to cover administration and staff costs and to provide for the distribution of grants to approved diocesan and parish projects.

The Melbourne Anglican Foundation supports the work of the Anglican Church in Melbourne and Geelong.

Since its inception the Foundation has evolved into administering a number of other funds:

The corpus is invested by a board of directors and provides an income stream to cover administration and staff costs and to provide for the distribution of grants to approved diocesan and parish projects.

  • The Melbourne Anglican Youth Fund
  • The Melbourne Anglican Foundation Chaplaincy Fund
  • Migrants and Refugees Settlement Fund
  • Melbourne Anglican Benevolent Society
  • Melbourne Anglican Cultural Organisation

 From the Executive Officer

 

Welcome to this year’s update on the Melbourne Anglican Foundation activities.

It has been another twelve months of progress and development for the Melbourne Anglican Foundation. We continue to support the work of many parishes within the Diocese. Assisting parishes with Choir and Music Development, through the Melbourne Anglican Cultural Organisation has been a growth area for us.
 
Another area which was new to us was supporting Anglicans Helping to Prevent Violence Against Women, under the Social Responsibilities Committee. If you are interested in further details on this please go to www.melbourneanglican.org.au/women
 
We also have many stories in our supplement that I hope you enjoy. I was personally moved by the Revd Barbara Colliver’s reflection on hospital chaplaincy at Monash Medical Centre. The Foundation continues to support hospital chaplaincy in the Diocese and I encourage you to make a donation through our Chaplaincy fund.
 
This year Hospital Chaplaincy Sunday is on 16 August. If your parish wishes to participate in this please contact Stephen Delbridge at sdelbridge@melbourneanglican.org.au
 
Finally, I ask you to consider supporting our work by downloading the form on this page or by telephone on (03) 9653 4286.
 
Thank you for partnering with us in the ministries of the Diocese.
