Local charitable organisations in the Logan City community are being given a leg-up by the Greenbank Services Club.
Sarah Evans from the Greenbank Services Club says the club established the “Greenbank Services Club Community Benefit Foundation” to provide support to the local community with direct grants to charitable organisations, helping improve community welfare and make our local communities a place to live, work and play.
“The foundation also aims to target charitable organisations with limited resources and/or financial support,” Sarah says.
“This year we have an amount of up to $75,000 in total with individual grants to range from $1,000 to $10,000 per application except where it can be proven that meaningful impact will result from the community grant in which case the funds allocated will be greater.
“$75,000 is a substantial amount of funds to inject into our local community…and these grants are open until 30th November.”
The club is welcoming applications from the eligible Not-for-Profit organisations that provide vital local services in the areas of childhood/youth; people with disabilities; environmental care and social/community welfare.
Applicants must demonstrate that they fall within the following eligibility guidelines:
- The applicant is a community based not for profit organisation, small community based organisation, community support group, community based sporting organisation, charitable organisation or state school.
- The organisation must reside or based in the Brisbane Southside community.
