Community Grants Increased to $60,000

For the past seven years the club has provided not-for-profit groups and community organisations the chance to secure grants of up to $5000 each.

Submissions are open for the Seventh Annual Community Benefits Grants Fund and General Manager Suzanne Long said that the club was excited to be offering an additional $10,000 in grants this year.

“We are really thrilled to be able to increase this year’s Grants fund to $60,000, the club is focused on boosting our donations to the community each and every year,” she said.

Ms Long went on to say that eligible groups can apply for a grant ranging from $1000-5000 which can make a big different to some organisations.

“Over the past seven years we have seen such great things achieved as a result of the community grants, organisations that could not otherwise afford to either invest in new equipment or complete a much needed project are given the opportunity to do so by applying for a grant of up to $5000,” Ms Long said.

“This component of the club’s community-support program is a major highlight of the year for the club. It’s a very rewarding way the club can give back to the region”.

Successful applicants must meet the grants criteria and be a community based not-for-profit organisation, small community based organisation, community support group, community based sporting organisation or charitable organisation. Submissions close on March 31.
