Westpac Foundation Community Grants
Westpac Foundation has announced a new $500,000 partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), expanding its Community Grant program in rural, regional and remote areas across Australia.
Westpac Foundation’s Community Grant program, established in 2012, provides $10,000 grants to local organisations creating opportunities through education, training and employment across Australia. Not-for-profit organisations providing support to communities outside a major city are now invited to apply.
In addition to the funding, Community Grant recipients will have access to pro bono support via the Westpac Changemaker program, which includes access to leadership development programs, legal support and financial capability training.
Community organisations based in or providing support to areas outside a major city, as defined by the 2016 ABS Remoteness Index, can apply for a Rural Community Grant through the FRRR application gateway until May 13.
