The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal

The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal ("FRRR") is based on Australian, US and UK models which encourage partnerships between rural and regional communities, philanthropy, government and business to fund and implement rural development projects aimed at reinvigorating rural areas, especially where initiatives can lead to new sources of economic wellbeing.

FRRR is a co-investor with The Foundation for Young Australians and The Myer Foundation in the Youth Incentive Fund, which grew out of the Youth Philanthropy Project, an initiative that commenced in early 2003 with the aim of increasing the participation of young Australians in philanthropy.

The International Youth Foundation

The International Youth Foundation believes young people possess the power to shape the future. To learn, work, thrive, and lead, they need access to programs and resources that inspire and challenge them. IYF is a global nonprofit organisation that makes this possible.

Together, IYF and its partners build effective, sustainable, and scaleable programs that positively impact the lives of young people worldwide.

The Global Fund for Youth Development program, which is a joint initiative of the Lucent Technologies Foundation and IYF, supports the BYTE and BYTE’s Back projects.
