Investing in people as a catalyst for a thriving Burnett Inland

Red Earth Community Foundation is a non-profit organisation in the Burnett Inland (which encompasses South Burnett, Cherbourg, and North Burnett).

Red Earth's mission is to invest in people as a catalyst for the Burnett Inland region to thrive into the future.


This is achieved through:

The annual
Red Earth Community Leadership Program - Now in its 11th year, and with over 220 Alumni, Red Earth's flagship leadership program invests in the personal and professional development of those in the Burnett Inland (and beyond).

The annual
Red Earth Leadership Forum - An opportunity for people from across the Burnett Inland to be inspired, to collaborate, and to co-design the future of their region.

Disaster Resilient: Future Ready Program - In partnership with FRRR, Red Earth is delivering the DR:FR program to six small communities across the Burnett Inland, increasing disaster preparedness and strengthening resilience. There are also a number of regional projects being rolled out as part of this project.

The organisation's
philanthropic structure - Red Earth facilitates to fundraising initiatives that meet the needs of the Burnett Inland, i.e. the recent South Burnett Mental Health Golf Challenge which raised $70,000 for mental health initiatives in the region.

Red Earth plays a vital role in fostering local philanthropy and empowering the region to address their unique challenges and opportunities.
