What is FRRR?
The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) is a not-for-profit organisation that harnesses the power of collective investment between government, business and philanthropy to improve the lives of those living in rural, regional and remote Australia.
The Farina Restoration Group Inc. have been actively working with the FRRR for some considerable time, and now have a very positive relationship with them.As the only Australian organisation offering small, discretionary grants, we are an important conduit for philanthropy to rural and regional communities. The collaborative approach we take is also quite unique, allowing groups with a common interest to leverage their investment.
Our work has both a national reach and local focus and is informed by place-based approaches to community development.
We strongly believe that community members are best-placed to understand community needs, wants and aspirations and we advocate community based solutions for community issues. Strong community leadership enables communities to be self-sustaining, resilient and adaptable to economic, social, cultural and environmental changes.
Our tax status also makes us unique: as an Item 1 DGR entity (see ATO endorsement), FRRR is able to receive funds from Item 2 DGR entities as it is covered by Subdivision 30-B of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 and we are specifically listed as a recipient for deductible gifts under section 30-105.
Due to these broad powers, there is no need for the organisation receiving a grant to be a deductible gift recipient under tax law, however their project must be charitable and promote rural and regional renewal, regeneration and development.
FRRR can also receive donations from non-charitable organisations and provide tax deductible receipts; these funds are received into the FRRR Public Fund.
