Who is Hands Across Canberra?

26 February 2020

Hands Across Canberra is an independent community foundation that focuses on serving and giving back to more than 250 local community organisations. They create campaigns to encourage philanthropy and make it easier for Canberrans to give.

Village Building Company is a proud supporter of Hands Across Canberra and we are thrilled to help raise awareness for their Campaign, the Canberra Day Appeal. Hands Across Canberra is calling on 100,000 people to raise their hand for Canberra and donate $10. The goal is to raise $1,000,000 by Canberra Day 2020 – over the next few weeks, your donation will make a positive impact and provide funds to those organisations that are in need.
