Up To $20K On Offer for Rural NFPs

Grants of up to $20,000 for Not for Profit projects in the areas of Health and Wellbeing, Community Safety, Environment and Education are now on offer.

The grants aimed at regional and rural-based Not for Profit groups are from Aurizon, one of Australia’s biggest rail freight companies, as part of its Community Giving Fund.

Aurizon’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Lance Hockridge said the Community Giving Fund was an integral part of the company.

“Aurizon’s Community Giving Fund provides the communities where our employees live and work with the chance to secure funding to their charitable activities,” Hockridge said.

“Since beginning in 2011, our Fund has provided grants to more than 120 eligible charities in regional and rural Australia.

“The Fund is something that is extremely important to our employees. Our employees have identified the key focus areas for the Giving Fund they champion within their local communities. It is great to be able to give directly to their communities.

“Our Community Giving Fund is designed to celebrate and support regional and rural Australia.”

Aurizon works in conjunction with the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) Australia to provide the biannual grants program.

Applications for the grants will close at 5pm (AEST) on Thursday, April 24.
