THE ACT government has committed $5 million to create a new philanthropic fund in Canberra, which will provide additional support to those Canberrans most in need.
The fund, called the Chief Minister’s Charitable Fund, is a collaboration with Hands Across Canberra, an independent community organisation, working with more than 160 local community charities to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable people in Canberra.
