Anam Cara Geelong Foundation

Launched in May 2013, the Anam Cara Geelong Foundation was set up to financially support the operations of Anam Cara House.

Currently, Anam Cara Geelong receives no government support and operates on the generosity of the community, businesses and philanthropic trusts.

It is a true community asset but without ongoing support Anam Cara House will cease to exist. Anyone of us could need the organisation's help at any time – supporting it is in the best interests of us all.

Investing in the Foundation will help ensure palliative respite care continues to be available in the Geelong community.
