Grants of up to $10,000 available to local community organisations thanks to Buderim Foundation.
The Buderim Foundation is opening applications for its annual Community Grants Program for 2023, with grants of up to $10,000 available for local organisations with initiatives that make a positive impact on the local Buderim community.
Applications open on Monday, 8th May to organisations serving the local 4556 community, and eligible applicants will need to apply online before Sunday 25th June.
Buderim Foundation Grants Committee chair Rebecca Ramsay said the application process was easily completed online and successful applicants will be announced at the Foundation’s 2023 annual Community Grants Celebration on Sunday 10th September.
“The projects need to directly benefit residents within the 4556-postcode area with a diverse range of areas of interest from protecting our natural environment to supporting youth in our community,” Mrs Ramsay said.
“Each year the program attracts a lot of interest. Last year, $60,000 in grants were awarded to 14 local organisations, taking the total amount distributed over 15 years to over $731,825.”
Mrs Ramsay said it was only through the continued generous support of donors that the Foundation was able to invest money, to generate returns that could be re-invested in the community each year through local organisations.
“By investing in organisations serving the Buderim and 4556 community, we strive to support, and encourage positive initiatives that include assisting people to live healthy and fulfilling lives, encouraging cultural endeavours, increasing learning opportunities, protecting and preserving our natural environment and supporting youth in our community.”
The Buderim Foundation is a philanthropic organisation which harnesses the power of giving by generating income from donations and bequests and providing grants for worthwhile community projects.
