Our Mission and Philosophy – What we believe

Kindred Spirts Foundation is a humanitarian community-focused organisation, engaging, assisting and strengthening local communities across Australia.

We support local projects that have the potential to transform communities, encouraging and strengthening the people of those communities, by addressing the social and environmental issues affecting the quality of life.

Together with our partners, we aim to build the capacity for communities to recognise challenges and create long term differences and solutions.  We connect people within their own communities by the provision of tools, resources and local support – including funding, mentoring, guidance, culturally appropriate engagement and networking opportunities and professional and business assistance.
