The Grants Process

Donations to the Buderim Foundation are pooled and carefully invested and income from the investments is used to make grants available to not-for-profit community organisations that provide a service to residents in the 4556 postcode area. Each year, since grants were first awarded in 2008, the Foundation has been able to increase the amount of money available.

In the nine years from 2008 to 2016, the Buderim Foundation has awarded grants worth more than $342,000 to 62 Buderim community organisations at its annual Good News event which is held in September each year. All not-for-profit organisations providing services to the Buderim community are eligible to apply provided they meet certain criteria. Grants are awarded to projects that relate to eight areas of interest:

•  Protecting and preserving our natural environment
•  Assisting people in need to live healthy and fulfilling lives
•  Adding richness and diversity to local artistic and cultural endeavours
•  Increasing learning opportunities across all age groups
•  Celebrating and showcasing our heritage and local history
•  Encouraging and supporting those with sporting and other recreation interests
•  Strengthening the social fabric of the community
•  Supporting youth in our community.
