A new fundraising partnership was announced yesterday designed to stamp out appeal duplication locally.
Radio Ballarat has signed an MOU with the Ballarat Foundation to create the 'Ballarat Winter Appeal'.
The Foundation will take over the management of the appeal as well as the annual Christmas Appeal.
Ballarat Foundation CEO Andrew Eales says its an honour to take up the challenge.
"We know that there is going to be some learnings for the Foundation in taking on this immense responsibility."
"We certainly have admired and are really respectful of what has occurred here over the last 40 years," Mr Eales said.
Radio Ballarat via its twin stations 3BA and Power FM will contiue to heavily promote the appeals.
