The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne works closely with several welfare and assistance agencies that support Australians from all works of life.
The Melbourne Anglican Foundation began in 1987, inspired by the vision of Archbishop David Penman. The Foundation seeks to raise funds to facilitate the mission and ministry of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Melbourne, to enable the Church to think big and dream large about its future, and to maintain a Christian presence in the wider community.
The Anglican Development Fund (ADF) has operated in the Diocese of Melbourne since 1967. Its principle purpose is to raise investment funds from parishes and other members of the Anglican community, and then lend them to parishes and other Anglican institutions to finance capital developments within the Diocese.
Melbourne Anglican Trust Corporation (“MATC”) is a wholesale charitable investment fundraiser.
