Are you looking to replace that old Barbie or get a new marquee? Do you need help to develop the local playground or plant trees? You may be surprised to know that there are a number Government Departments and private bodies anxious to give you a hand. There is a wealth of information available, and you can start by investing in the easy grants newsletter.
This is a monthly publication that can be either emailed or mailed to you once per month. It lists all current grants available (local, state & federal including philanthropic) and costs $55 per year. You can apply for your copy online at http://www.ourcommunity.com.au/community/
Another useful website is the Department of Planning & Community Development - Click Here, then click on Grants. Have a look around this site as it does have grants that are available on an ongoing basis.
If you have a Bendigo Community Bank Branch in your area, contact with the local manager could be beneficial to your club.
It's also a great idea to develop and foster a relationship with your local council as they are also another source of funds and support. Click on the appropriate link below to find out more:
