2014 Westpac Community Grants Available
Thursday, 13th February 2014 at 3:28 pm

Banking giant Westpac will award more than half a million dollars in funding to Not for Profits committed to improving the lives of disadvantaged Australians, as part of its 2014 Community Grants Program.

Each Not for Profit can apply for a funding boost of up to $10,000 through this year’s program.

“The aim of the Westpac Foundation Community Grants Program is to help organisations continue to address important social issues and improve the lives of disadvantaged people in the community, including youth and the unemployed, those living with disability, Indigenous Australians and migrants building a new life in Australia,” according to Jason Yetton, Group Executive of Retail and Business Banking at Westpac and member of the Westpac Foundation board.

“We have a strong history and commitment to contributing to Australian communities and the Westpac Foundation Community Grants Program is a practical example of our ongoing support of Australians who need it most.

“Since its establishment two years ago, we have provided more than one million dollars in grants, which has benefited 113 Not for Profit organisations across Australia.

“There are many largely volunteer-led organisations out there that are doing outstanding work but need additional funding to continue to expand and make a positive impact in their communities.

“At Westpac, we feel we have a responsibility to nurture their growth and we’re encouraging these types of Not for Profit organisations to apply for funding to help them continue to make a significant difference in their local communities,” Yetton said.

Applications are open from now until Monday March 31. Grant applications will be judged by panels of staff, selected by the Westpac Foundation Board, with the winners announced in June 2014.

To check grant eligibility criteria and apply, visit the Westpac Foundation.
