Do you have an idea to connect or inspire our community or protect and enhance the environment in the local area?
Apply for a Community and Cultural or an Environmental Grant and we could help bring your idea to life.
2020/21 Community and Cultural Grants
Our Community and Cultural Grants Program supports projects and initiatives that enhance a connected, liveable, vibrant and creative community in the Woollahra area. The program offers Small Grants of up to $2,000 to non-profit community based organisations, groups or individuals and Large Grants of up to $7,500 to non-profit community based organisations or groups.
Last year we funded a women’s laser regatta, an art exhibition showcasing talents of individuals living with disability, free door-to-door medical related transport, safe summer education for youth, an art prize encouraging local artists to bring attention to small things, a symphonic concert series and much, much more.
During these unprecedented times, it is particularly important to support community connection and improve mental health in our community. We encourage applicants to submit innovative and inspiring ideas that enable the development of projects in new ways in these uncertain times.
Read more about the grants, including guidelines and application forms, or call us on 9391 7112 to discuss your idea further.
Applications for 2020/21 Community and Cultural Grants close midnight Sunday 7 June.
2020/21 Environmental Grants
We’re also looking to provide grants towards projects or activities that will protect or enhance our local environment.
Applications for our Environmental Grants are now open and eligible community groups and local schools may apply for up to $2000 funding per project.
We have a particular focus on climate change action this year and we encourage you to consider projects that help to reduce carbon emissions, reduce water use and minimise waste to landfill.
There are many types of projects that may be suitable, including:
- Energy saving initiatives, e.g. LED lighting upgrades or solar installations
- Water saving initiatives, e.g. water tanks or smart sprinkler systems
- Waste minimisation/recycling initiatives, e.g. reusable plates and cups for canteens
- Community clean-ups
- Native gardens, bush tucker gardens or native bee hives
- Organic vegetable gardens
- Chicken coops
- Bush regeneration
