Welcome to the
Mumbulla Foundation

The Foundation promotes community well-being by making grants to small charity and not-for-profit groups for social, environmental and cultural activities within the Bega Valley Shire.

It also funds University Scholarships and Back to School Vouchers. To support these activities the Foundation seeks private and business donations, receives a matching annual grant from Council, and undertakes its own fundraising activities.

In its 20 years in operation the Foundation has given more than $1.6 million in grants to over 300 organisations.

The grant is used to purchase a MicroEye Microscope.  The simplicity of this microscope means it can be used successfully by people of all ages to take a closer look at specimens contained in the touch tank and dried specimens.  It has become a valuable tool in educating the wider community about the local temperate marine environment.
