Our Work.

MPF acts as an intermediary linking resources with unmet community needs. Our objective is to significantly reduce socio-economic disadvantage on the Mornington Peninsula.

Our small grants meet an immediate need, and improve the situation for a person or group in the short term. They create oppurtunities for trying new ideas and ways of doing things. Small grants also provide us with a window into the community, through which information about local assets and systems can be used for bigger projects.

To date we have funded 53 projects with 23 complete and 30 underway.
Grant amounts range from $500 to $1.05M and from stand alone events to multi-year projects.

Since starting operations in April 2017 MPF has raised $ 2,490,270 in grant funding.
