A donation to The Mackay Community Foundation is a gift that keeps on giving. All donations to The Foundation are treated as capital.
Only the income generated from the invested capital is distributed regularly to nominated charities and causes in the Mackay region. This process works to continually build our capital and provide more yearly income to distribute.

Applications that address one or more of the above areas will be given preference.
