The future of the Peninsula includes everyone on the Peninsula



MPF is a place-based philanthropic organisation.
We support innovative, community led initiatives in education and social services to increase equity of access to opportunities and resources.

We use philanthropic investments to identify barriers to access, test new ideas, and build an evidence base for partners who can take change to scale.

“Without exaggerating, No Limits has been a fundamental game changer for us. What started as a project for prep has ended up as a P to 6 expansion. We’ve now got prep to grade 6 implementation and consistency across the whole school.” ~ Principal

”The basis of our work is the young people in our community. If they’re at the centre of everything we do then the work that comes from that will be authentic and it will be the approaches that we need.”
