The Foundation aims to maintain the heritage of the Club by preserving significant features which give Yarra Yarra its uniqueness, history and values.
The Foundation Fund is controlled by a Board of Trustees independent from the General Committee and Administration of the Club. Foundation accounts are subject to audit and are published in the Club’s Annual Report. The objective of the Foundation is to create a capital fund, the interest of which can fund projects without drawing down on the capital.
Membership of the Yarra Yarra Golf Club Foundation is activated by donations of $1,000 or more to the Foundation. Currently there are over 80 Foundation members.
Donations (including bequests) can be given directly to the Foundation or through the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) projects. Donations through the ASF are tax deductible.
The Yarra Yarra Golf Club Foundation is active in raising funds for special projects nominated by the General Committee for the improvement of member facilities and the preservation of the Club’s heritage.
