About the KingKira Community Fund

Established in partnership with Fremantle Foundation, the KingKira Community Fund aims to make dreams become a reality, supporting aspirational people in the further development of their chosen passions or careers. The KingKira Community Fund is part of Tammy O’Connor’s way of “giving back” for the opportunities, support and mentoring she received throughout her working career from both business and individuals. Tammy is a firm believer that the funds generated from the Pilbara should be accessible to any person or community that may not have the same opportunity or support typically offered elsewhere in the Pilbara.

How does it work?

Fremantle Foundation assists individuals, families, groups and businesses to establish charitable funds to support causes they care about. Donors make contributions (which can be tax deductible) into the fund, then advise the Fremantle Foundation which projects and organisations to support. Fremantle Foundation board is guided by the Fund’s creator (in this case Tammy) as to where the grants should be directed. It also gives the KingKira Community Fund added assistance to support Tammy’s quest to award more personalised grants to those requiring assistance to achieve their dreams.

Fremantle Foundation plays the role of Trustee and manages all administration and compliance. For the KingKira Community Fund, it is an effective, efficient and high impact way to structure philanthropy, enabling funds to be accessed much faster for potential benefactors. The Fremantle Foundation holds over 60 named funds making over $2M, and in 2018/19 distributed $421,000 in grants to the WA community on behalf of donors.
