Community groups across the state are invited to apply for a share of $100,000 in project funding, thanks to the Queensland Country Good for Good Community Grants.
The grants program provides funding of between $5,000 and $30,000 for projects that make a practical difference to the lives of Queenslanders.
While the program is now in its second year, this is the first time it has been offered to Queenslanders Credit Union members, thanks to the recent merger with Queensland Country Credit Union.
Queensland Country CEO Aileen Cull said the program was designed to provide a helping hand to community groups, while also embracing the concept of paying it forward.
“After receiving their funding, grant recipients agree to forward on the goodwill by fundraising 10% of their grant amount for our charity partner,” Ms Cull said.
“We are once again proud to be partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities, and will be boosting the fundraising efforts of our grant recipients with an additional $20,000 contribution from the Credit Union,” she said.
Eight community projects received funding in last year’s Good for Good Community Grants, including a road safety training track in Townsville, emergency helicopter landing pad in Jerona and outdoor play equipment in Weipa.
Ms Cull said she hopes to see even more applications from not-for-profit groups right around the state this year.
“We’re looking to support projects in the areas of sport and recreation; health; education; environment; and the arts, culture and heritage.
“In particular, we’d love to help get projects off the ground that benefit under-represented groups, increase community participation or help to keep people safe.
“We know there’s a lot of good being done at a grass-roots level in our community and we’re excited to be a part of that.”
Applications are open until 3 May. Visit goodforgood.com.au for details.
