Impact Fund: Celebrating Five Years

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Join us on Thursday 7 April for a celebration of what we've achieved together through the Impact Fund.

Five years ago, Australian Communities Foundation started the Impact Fund to bring funders and changemakers together to tackle the biggest issues facing Australia. It has been a remarkable journey with some incredible achievements along the way, and we invite you to join us in celebrating the change we've made together.

From helping win the marriage equality campaign, to overturning laws that discriminate against Indigenous peoples; from showing that farmers care about climate, to standing up for our gun safety laws against a powerful gun lobby – ACF Impact Funders are behind some of the most powerful changemakers in the country. It is time to celebrate!

Join in person at the Victorian Pride Centre in St Kilda, Melbourne, or join online from anywhere in Australia.
