Through grass-roots hands-on community-based works, EGF helps to build community capacity and sustainability
EGF provides key resources to communities:
- Project Management and Service Delivery Support
- Advocacy services
- Funding for projects delivery
EGF has two related organisational entities. One is an Australian registered charitable entity that operates a Not-for-Profit structure to develop, support and deliver community development projects. The other is a commercial consulting service structured as a Profit-for-Purpose entity to generate surplus funds to seed-fund and conduct global project initiatives.
EGF implements project initiatives by nurturing relationships between communities, organisations and our members and supporting them through their project.
The Board of Directors operate the company virtually and pro-bono; that is without an office space or staff. This enables the company to maintain its constitutional ethics towards environment as well as achieve financial objectives of keeping overheads low and maximising profits back into member's projects.
EGF's consulting services provide experienced specialists for facilitating large programs that have diverse cultural elements requiring multiple approaches to deliver community development and communications intelligence, such as our works brokerage finding for disaster recovery on the Aceh Tsunami Rehabilitation Program and delivery of the National Digital TV Switchover in the Northern Territory for the Australian Commonwealth Government.
The Ethos Global vision guides the practice of community development in an ethical and conscious way. Our work acknowledges the interconnected nature of people, communities and the environment and our community development programs support and nurture these relationships.
Services have been provided to Indigenous organisations and communities in the following areas:
Through it’s not-for-profit member-based structure EGF has an exceptionally broad group of expert consultants and organisations who work across a variety of program sectors, including inter-discinplinary aspects of the arts, health, environment and sustainable livelihoods development.
