Life is mostly froth and bubble, Two things stand like stone, Kindness in another’s trouble, Courage in your own.

The Stand Like Stone Foundation, established in 2004, is a dynamic community foundation serving the Limestone Coast (in the South East of South Australia).

Stand Like Stone offers individuals, families, groups, corporations and not-for-profit organisations an easy and satisfying way of giving something of real value back to the community that they care about.


All donations are pooled and invested and as a result of this, the income generated from this investment is used over time to support charitable projects and organisations and to give educational scholarships.

The foundation offers grants for charitable projects benefitting the Limestone Coast and offers educational scholarships to students with a connection to the Limestone Coast.

Stand Like Stone also facilitates projects which contribute to the community in many ways, resulting in both financial and social benefit, such as the Back to School and Stay at School programs.

Our Mission is to build on the generosity of spirit within our community and promote investment in the Limestone Coast for lasting impact.
