The Community Broadcasting Foundation is Australia’s longest-running and largest supporter of community radio and TV.
We are a charitable agency that seeks, secures and distributes funding to support local, independent community broadcasting nationally.
Supporting the community
More than five million people connect to community radio every week; another million engage with their local community TV station. Around 25,000 people power the stations by volunteering.
The Australian community broadcasting sector is recognised as one of the most successful examples of grassroots media in the world.
Our vision is to create a thriving independent media sector for all Australians. We are committed to access, diversity, independence, localism, multiculturalism, and social justice.
Nimble & efficient
Since its establishment in 1984 the CBF has distributed more than $207 million to almost 500 eligible organisations. Our administration costs amount to only six per cent of our annual turnover.
Turn your donation into so much more
Even more than great content, community radio and TV allows for great connections to be made. Connections that can help tackle a universal and increasing social issue – loneliness.
Community broadcasting is in a unique position to make a difference; entering the homes, cars and offices of lonely people every day. It is a familiar and trusted voice. We will fund programs to create connections at station and community level, increase volunteering and reducing loneliness.
You can contribute to the work of the Community Broadcasting Foundation
With a third of Australians experiencing loneliness at some time, it is a growing issue with a serious social cost. Research tells us that with such a big reach, community broadcasting is perfectly placed to beat loneliness.
Remember the Community Broadcasting Foundation in your Will and make your lasting mark on the sector.
Our Ambassadors are public supporters of community broadcasting, the CBF and our campaigns. You might see or hear them talking about us and encouraging others to contribute to our work.
The Community Broadacsting Foundation seeks, secures, distributes and administers funding to support the development, creativity and sustainability of community broadcasting in Australia. We couldn't do it without our supporters.
