Project and Communications Coordinator - Flexible Location

The Aurora Group

The Aurora Group is a not-for-profit organisation, raising funds to disburse to LGBTIQ community organisations. Aurora exists so people can support a broad range of projects responding to the frontline needs of our community. We are the organisation people choose when they want their money to benefit the little groups doing big things.

The Aurora Group raises funds through our events, giving and patronage programs. We are currently growing and transforming our organisation towards becoming a National Philanthropic Foundation.
