Community Partnership Grants
Wednesday, 5th April 2017 at 3:57 pm

Community organisations can apply for a share of $160,000 in Commonwealth government funding for projects that showcase their philanthropic partnerships.

Minister for Social Services Christian Porter said on Wednesday that community organisations working with philanthropic or business partners could apply for up to $10,000 to demonstrate the success of their partnerships in strengthening communities during the annual Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week (CPPW).

This year’s partnerships week, to be held from 20 to 26 November, will focus on the theme of  “building stronger communities together”.

“The week celebrates philanthropic partnerships with community groups around Australia, to advance our culture of philanthropy and volunteering,” Porter said.

“It is a great opportunity for community organisations and their philanthropic or business partners to highlight their collaborative work.”

The grants round is managed by Philanthropy Australia, in partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, and closes on 12 May 2017.

In 2016, 19 community groups in urban and rural areas shared just over $152,000 in grants to communicate the power of partnerships during CPPW.

Each of the projects funded showed the diverse ways that community groups were making an impact in their communities, with support from philanthropic partners.
