GRANTS OPEN FOR VOLUNTEER ORGANISATIONS IN BONNER
Ross Vasta MP has called on community organisations in Bonner to apply for a share of up to $20 million in funding to support the efforts of their volunteers.

Mr Vasta said applications for the Volunteer Grants round are now open.

“Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 will help local community organisations buy equipment such as laptops, pay fuel costs, train volunteers and improve their fundraising,” Mr Vasta said.

“Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and by continuing to help each other and work together, we are building a stronger and safer community.

“Five organisations in Bonner were among the 2,690 groups nationally who benefited from the Volunteer Grants in 2016, including Make It Home Safely in Wynnum and South Western Metro Basketball in Upper Mt Gravatt.

“Make It Home Safely used their grant to cover the costs of undertaking background screening checks of volunteers and reimbursing their volunteers’ training costs.

“I encourage all not-for-profit organisations in Bonner to apply for the Volunteer Grants to help make the work of our volunteers easier, safer and more enjoyable.”

For more information or to apply, visit the Australian Government’s GrantConnect website at www.grants.gov.au.

Applications close Tuesday 18 September 2018.
