People interested in making a positive difference to their community are being encouraged to apply for funding from not-for-profit company ETC.
ETC Chairman Rod McKelvey said ETC was making available $300,000 in community grants as part of the ETC Community Support Fund.
“The fund is designed to help organisations reduce disadvantage, generate opportunity, increase support services and/or build capacity in the communities in which we operate,” Mr McKelvey said.
Mr McKelvey said organisations could apply for up to $30,000 each with funding for small projects also encouraged. Applications would be assessed based on how well they align with ETC’s focus on employment and training, and meet one or more of the funding objectives:
Mr McKelvey said the ETC Community Support Fund had provided $1.1M in funding to 130 worthwhile organisations since 2012.
“It’s incredible the projects we’ve been able to support over the past seven years,” Mr McKelvey said.
“Some of our beneficiaries have included Meals on Wheels, Lifeline, Cancer Council, Multicap, Camp Quality, Interrelate, NSW State Emergency Service, OzHarvest, PCYC, the House with No Steps, and Westpac Rescue Helicopter.”
The ETC Community Support Fund is now open and closes on 15 April 2019
