    Barmal Bijiril evolved from Koondee Woonga-gat Toor-rong, which is a First Nations Community-Led philanthropic sub-fund of the Australian Communities Foundation. It was established in 2018 with the aim of dispersing funds to First Nations peoples and communities across Victoria. The name Barmal Bijiril is language derived from Kuku Yulangi country in Far North Queensland and translates roughly to “To take someone to dream”.

    Our CEO John Harding recently met with CEO Jack Heath outlining the aims and objectives of Barmal Bijiril, and sought ways that we can assist each other with the development of more positive relationships with regards to the relationship between First Nations peoples and the philanthropic sector. We spoke of many ways we can work together, and Barmal Bijiril looks forward with great anticipation to consolidating an exciting and positive way forward to all concerned in philanthropy and a truthful manifestation of our co-existence in this space!
