About Us

Hands Across Canberra is Canberra’s independent community foundation. Founded in 2010 by a group of Canberra leaders with the idea of creating a foundation to help fellow Canberrans and give back to the community, it now works with more than 300 local community organisations.

The goal is to tackle the challenges in the community by raising funds for community-service organisations working with our most vulnerable individuals and families, while also embedding a culture of giving in Canberra.

How your donation will help

By supporting Hands Across Canberra through the Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day, you will be supporting over 300 local charities and community organisations in our network, as funds will be going into our next grant round. Hands Across Canberra regularly distributes grants based on the needs of those most vulnerable in our community.
