Round two Community Grants recipients announced

Westfund is proud to announce the successful applicants from round two of the Community Grants Program.

Following the success of the inaugural round, the committee was pleasantly surprised at the volume and the quality of the applicants.

The Community Grants Program also includes the Here for Hearts initiative which aims to provide fully-funded defibrillators to community groups.

Particularly pleasing was the number of applications for defibrillators in round two, underscoring the important value of these potentially life-saving devices.

A key part of the program’s framework, successful applicants are engaged in projects which encourage and promote the four pillars of Health, Fit for Life, Family and Community.

Westfund CEO Matt Banning was pleased that the program has gone from strength to strength and has maintained the popularity experienced in the inaugural round.

We’re delighted with the response to round two of our Community Grants Program. We’re grateful for the opportunity to support such worthy initiatives from a diverse range of community-minded organisations.

Matt Banning, CEO Westfund

Westfund’s Community Grants Program, launched in 2018, provides greater opportunity for organisations across Australia to access funds to support initiatives aimed at empowering and strengthening their local communities.

The next round will open later in 2019.
