$150,000 Kedron-Wavell Services Club Community Investment Grant Program – now open

January 31st, 2015

Kedron-Wavell Services Club is giving away $150,000 in grants to local, regional and community organisations.

Applications are now open for the Club’s 2015 Community Investment Grant Program which this year will provide 81 organisations with either a $5,000, $2,500 or $1,000 grant.

Community-based organisations are invited to submit an application showing how they strengthen their communities by making a valuable and long term sustainable contribution. Organisations requiring financial assistance or who have ideas they believe will help the community are also encouraged to apply.

Club Secretary Manager, Lyndon Broome, said that over the last 10 years the Kedron-Wavell Services Club has provided $12million in grants to individual or community organisations, as well as extensive in-kind support.

“The Community Investment Grant Program is part of our commitment to playing an active part in our community and ensuring the Club’s community donations are distributed amongst deserving organisations who are doing great work within our community,” he said.

“We know first-hand that it is the small projects that can often have a significant reach and impact on our communities. This is an opportunity for community-based organisations to come forward and tell us about the good work they are doing.”

Applications close 28 February 2015 and successful applicants will be notified within 60 days. For more information and to download the Community Grants Information Booklet and application details visit www.kedron-wavell.com.au/community
