Riverina First Community Fund

The Riverina First Community Fund is a philanthropic fund used for improving social, cultural and community services and facilities in Riverina communities.

RDA-Riverina Chairman, Tom Watson, said “The Riverina First Community Fund is all about engaging and assisting community activities and allowing people in the region to develop regional solutions to community challenges and direct funding toward the things that matter to them most. We are pleased to be able to see these worthy projects get the funding that is sometimes difficult to raise yet desperately needed.”

A number of vital projects have been completed as a result of funding from the Riverina First Community Fund, including mobile base stations in Rankins Springs, Walla Walla, Marrar and Holbrook, the delivery of ADSL to several communities throughout the Riverina.

Since its inception in 2003 the Riverina First Community Fund has benefited a broad cross section of the community including art, charity, school, Indigenous and sporting groups, with in excess of $350,000 contributed to the various projects.
