NAB Gives Back to NFPs
Wednesday, 13th July 2016 at 9:47 am

Nearly 30 Not for Profits and social enterprises addressing a wide range of social issues including the prevalence of mental health, tackling domestic violence and supporting nature conservation have been awarded grants from the National Australia Bank.

Handing over money

In the latest round of NAB Foundation and NAB Community Grants, which were announced on Tuesday, 29 different projects from around the country have received grants ranging from $40,000 up to $250,000.

NAB said it had invested more than $6 million in community organisations through its grants program during the last three years.

NAB group executive, governance and reputation, Michaela Healey, said the grants are recognition of the vital role that these organisations play in strengthening communities.

“Without Not for Profit groups, and in many cases the efforts of dedicated volunteers, too many Australians would miss out on the critical support they need,” Healey said.

“The grants help to both enhance the wellbeing of Australians and to build the long-term sustainability of the community organisations that support them right across the country.

“Investing in our communities builds social cohesion, financial inclusion and a stronger economy that not only benefit our customers; but others in the community as well.”

NAB’s grants programs are administered through categories targeting social inclusion, mental health, access to services in rural and remote areas, empowerment of young Australians and helping Not for Profit organisations to build a sustainable community business into the future.

The latest recipients include the Black Dog Institute, which received $200,000 to fund a unique pilot project that integrates mental healthcare into GP clinics through an online platform.

Social enterprise STREAT, received $250,000 towards the development and delivery of it’s new bakery training program in Collingwood.

And the University of South Australia received $100,000 to develop and test an online, self-help intervention with and for Australian farmers, to see if it helps them better cope with things beyond their control such as drought.
