Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast has several hundred not for profit organisations and many distinct communities. Our current work focus is on strengthening relationships at board and committee level and providing pathways for boards and committees to support each other – especially in particular geographic locations.

The Sunshine Coast Council and The Queensland Community Foundation have been very generous in support our 2016/2017 initiatives.
