Giving back to our community
LTC Group stands behind a number of great organisations that make a difference.
We are proud to support these organisations with our time, resources and advocacy.
The Father Bob Maguire Foundation (FBMF) is a community outreach organisation that brings together Father Bob’s passion of tackling social isolation and reaching out to young people across cultural and religious borders.
Together with UrbanEdge Homes, the Father Bob Foundation, hosts the bi-annual UrbanDura ride to feed people in need around the city fringe including St Kilda, South Melbourne and Flinders Street Station.
Hobsons Bay Community Fund
The Hobsons Bay Community Fund is a perpetual philanthropic fund established in 2006 to provide financial grants to community groups and organisations operating in the Melbourne bayside municipality of Hobsons Bay. The municipality takes in the suburbs of Spotswood, Newport, Williamstown, Altona, Altona North, Altona Meadows, Laverton and Seabrook.
The fund is governed by a small group of local citizens and although strongly supported by the Hobsons Bay City Council, it is independent and arms length from the council. Projects funded must benefit and strengthen the Hobsons Bay community for present and future generations.
Since its inception, the Hobsons Bay Community Fund has been investing donations made by local businesses and individuals into a professionally managed investment fund run by the much larger Australian Communities Foundation. That means the Hobsons Bay Community Fund does not incur any overhead costs, ensuring every dollar donated goes directly to the benefit of the local community. Annual community grants are made from interest earned from the base investment fund, which has continued to grow annually.
Les Twentyman Foundation
Founded by Les Twentyman OAM, the Les Twentyman Foundation (formerly the 20th Man Fund) provides crucial support services for young people and their families. The Les Twentyman Foundation programs and services cover education-support, sports and recreation, counselling, personal development, life–experiences and employment pathways.
Young people in Victoria are facing increasing hardship that ultimately leads to behavioral problems. The pressure placed on a young person living in a low socio-economic area is not well understood by the general population. This pressure leads to the young person disconnecting from society in general, sinking into extreme levels of low self-esteem and self-worth and engaging in high-risk activity.
The Les Twentyman Foundation aims to reconnect them with their families and communities enabling them to reach their full potential and make a positive contribution to society.
For many kids, playing with toy trucks, diggers and other construction figurines is a part of life, but giving them the opportunity to experience the real thing takes the fun up a notch.
T7 Kids is an ever-evolving project that continues to grow into something that is getting people (including us) really excited!
Soon we will open our doors to parents, carers, schools and other organisations, so they can spend a day making all their dreams come true.
BeeKeeper Parade is an award winning social business founded three years ago on a promise a brother made to his sister who was fighting cancer in hospital: To use business to inspire positive change, do no harm to our environment and give back to the world.
So far, Beekeeper Parade has set-up its first permanent shop in Melbourne Australia, up-cycled 10 tonnes of fashion waste, and funded 3,000 places for kids to study English…but the story is not over yet… Beekeeper Parade wants to do more!
