THE DIFFERENCE

Koondee Woonga-gat Toor-rong is different because

  • We are a new platform for investing in First Nations people and organisations in Victoria

 

  • We start from the premise that we know our mobs the best

 

  • Our relationships with communities are already in place

 

  • We come to grant-making from an Indigenous world view

 

  • We can take you on a learning journey with us

 

  • We can translate conventional philanthropic practice into Indigenous contexts on your behalf

 

  • We can help you understand the local protocols that must be worked through before investing successfully

 

  • We understand that the most important priorities for our communities are cultural identity and connection

 

  • We measure our success in terms of how projects achieve community identified and determined outcomes
