Govt Funding for Community-Based Partnerships
29 April 2016 at 6:00 am
Community organisations can apply for a share of $160,000 in federal government funding for projects that showcase their philanthropic partnerships.
In opening the grants round, Minister for Social Services Christian Porter said up to $10,000 was available for projects that bring to life “the power of partnerships”, the theme of this year’s Community and Philanthropy Partnership Week.
“Community and Philanthropy Partnership Week, to be held from 5 to 11 December, brings together community and business leaders around Australia, to advance our culture of philanthropy and volunteering,” Porter said.
“During the inaugural week last year, successful recipients produced community expos, books and films for example, to tell their stories of how collaboration creates stronger communities.
“As the Deputy Chair of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership, it’s vital we recognise what’s being achieved at the grassroots to strengthen philanthropy and giving in Australia.
“The Commonwealth Government’s $650,000 investment over three years for the week demonstrates this commitment.”
Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week is an initiative of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership and is delivered by Philanthropy Australia in partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
