The Espero Fund aims to support charitable causes in Australia and overseas.
The Espero Fund
The Espero Fund was established in 2013 with the aim of supporting a number of charitable causes in Australia and overseas. In particular we wish to focus on community development and advocacy, improving educational opportunities and one-off aid projects that may arise.
Espero (meaning hope) is the name chosen for the fund to reflect our aspirations of improving opportunities for the next generation (in a small way) so they can live in peace and each individual can realise his or her full potential.
If you are planning for a year, sow rice.
If you are planning for a decade, plant trees.
If you are planning for a lifetime, educate a child.

How your donation is spent
The Espero fund is a sub fund of the Australian Communities Foundation and is classed by the Australian Tax Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR).
Administration costs are kept to a minimum, approximately 2%, and separately funded so that your donation will be 100% dedicated to nominated projects.
Donors are encouraged to be actively involved and are regularly updated of progress on projects. Currently the fund intends to sponsor about $20,000 per year. This may increase as the fund grows.
