The Giancarlo Ramaioli Bursary Fund 2018

Activelink grew out of a project that Giancarlo Ramaioli began in 1999. Over time Giancarlo together with Hyperlink built Activelink into a leading online resource for the community and non-profit sector, with two mailings, Activelink Community Exchange and Activelink Jobs & Volunteering.  Giancarlo became ill in 2006, but remained at the helm of Activelink right up until April 2009. He passed away in May 2009. Activelink continues to grow guided by Giancarlo’s vision and commitment to the community and social sectors. To honour his legacy we wish to assist other groups in developing their social enterprises.
