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 school book prizes. 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 million in grants to over 200 organisations.



Welcome to Bega Valley IMPACT100, a community of people seeking to transform lives in the Bega Valley by awarding high-impact grants. By pooling our financial and intellectual resources we can have a ripple effect in our community.

As part of the celebration of National Family Day Care Week the organisation acquired new climbing equipment with the assistance of the Mumbulla Grant.  The primary aim of this equipment is to promote physical activity and develop motor skills.


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.


The grant is provided for the conduct of workshops in dance and percussion that explored the non-verbal communication between people.  It was a program targeted at nurturing performers to explore and cross boundaries and was targeted at the 10-14 year age range.  This project called 'Stomp' culminated in a performance called 'Smoke Signal' in October 2013.


Tathra Aboriginal Education Project This grant was for the publication of the language book on the DHURGA and THAUA Aboriginal languages and the erection of 4 signs indicating significant aboriginal sites around Tathra.  The project has addressed the educational needs of students whilst raising awareness of Aboriginal languages of the South Coast and Far South Coast.
