Welcome to the Stand Like Stone Foundation.
The Stand Like Stone Foundation, established in 2004, is a dynamic community foundation serving the Limestone Coast (in the South East of South Australia).
The Stand Like Stone Foundation not only reflects some of the words of Adam Lindsay Gordon's famous poem Ye Wearie Wayfarer but our region's connection with stone, particularly limestone.
"Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
KINDNESS in another's trouble,
COURAGE in your own"
Adam Lindsay Gordon
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 twice a year for charitable projects benefitting the Limestone Coast and offers educational scholarships once a year. 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.
Annually in June, Stand Like Stone hosts the successful fundraising event Swinging with the Stars which provides not only a most enjoyable social event, but is our major fundraising event.
