The annual ClubGRANTS program is now open and MidCoast Council is encouraging community organisationsto apply.
Grants are made available throughNSW clubs that earn over $1 million annually in gaming machine revenue. In the MidCoast Council region, that means funds will be available in both theGreat Lakes and Manning areas.
In previous years funds have been allocated to a diverse range of community projects including support for the Great Lakes Women’s Shelter, programs for young people at risk and those with chronic illnesses.
“This funding is administered by local representatives who have an in-depth knowledge of our area, so local needs can be funded,” said MidCoast Council’scommunity development co-ordinator Lyndie Hepple.
ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said that clubs exist to meet the needs of their local area, which includes a commitment to providing considerable support through the ClubGRANTS program.
“Giving back to not-for-profit groups and charities is in the DNA of clubs, and this program provides the perfect opportunity in which to do so,” he said.
“For over 16 years, ClubGRANTS has encouraged these organisations to join forces with their local club for much-needed funding injections, it’s something our industry is extremely passionate about.
“Clubs have provided more than $1 billion in funding since the program’s inception, making ClubGRANTS one of the largest and most effective grants programs in Australia.”
