Our Community Grants Program is our way of giving back

Supporting communities to thrive is part of Westfund's DNA. We are passionate believers in community organisation that inspire the principles of Health and Wellbeing, Family and Community and Fit for Life.

This passion led to the creation of the Westfund Community Grants Program. Through the Program, we are proud to offer up to $120,000 in annual grants to eligible community groups and organisations.

The Westfund Community Program also includes our Here for Hearts program, which provides access to defibrillators for eligible organisations.

Built on a foundation of three pillars

Family and Community

Our regional roots mean we understand the importance of community support and a sense of belonging; ideas at the heart of Westfund and part of our story. Healthy families mean healthy communities and we’re committed to supporting both and enabling collective wellbeing. We support organisations and initiatives that care for families and meet a real need in their communities.

Health and Wellbeing

Health and wellbeing doesn’t just mean ticking the box of 30 minutes on the treadmill each day. We’re committed to a holistic view of health and wellbeing that incorporates good mental, physical and emotional health. We support organisations that share this commitment and initiatives that promote and encourage a healthy approach to life and general wellbeing.

Fit for Life

Being Fit for Life is about having the skills and tools to thrive. Aligned with our belief in holistic health and wellbeing, we support organisations and initiatives who join us in encouraging communities to increase and sustain healthy exercise, an increase in physical movement and getting active.
