About

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 to Stand Like Stone are pooled and invested. The income generated from this investment is used over time to support charitable projects and organisations and to give educational scholarships.

Stand Like Stone 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.
