Glenorchy Community Fund grants up for grabs

28 April 2022|Community News| Off Comments off on Glenorchy Community Fund grants up for grabs|

NOT-for-profit organisations and community groups working to enrich community spirit and alleviate social disadvantage in Glenorchy can now apply for Glenorchy Community Fund grants to assist with their ongoing activities and projects.

Operating since 2010, the Glenorchy Community Fund provides financial support to not-for-profit groups and organisations for worthy projects that will benefit and strengthen the community of Glenorchy.

The fund is supported by local businesses as well as a series of fundraising activities throughout the year.

Last year’s grant recipients included the West Moonah Community House and Community Shed, Science in the Pub, Glenorchy Community Care and The District Nurses, who have been operating in the Glenorchy area for the past 125 years.

“Last year The District Nurses was absolutely thrilled to receive two grants, which enable us to further assist our consumers by providing wound care packs and in the development of our Wellness Hub,” Denise Walsh from The District Nurses said.

“The Glenorchy Community Grant funding has been of enormous value to our activities.”

Applications for 2022/23 grants are now open, with not-for-profit organisations and community groups working in the Glenorchy municipality encouraged to apply.

“We are very excited to be accepting applications for another round of grants, helping more amazing community organisations who contribute so much to life in Glenorchy,” Glenorchy Community Fund chairperson Adriana Taylor said.

“We encourage groups to apply for smaller amounts, up to $4500, so that we can help as many as possible.”

Applications close on 13 May 2022. The grants, which are allocated by an advisory committee, will be presented at a community function in late June.
