Grant funding up for grabs for local charities
Orange not-for-profit and charity organisations have a new opportunity to seek funding for on-the-ground projects.
Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation’s next funding round is now open and all eligible, local community-based, not-for-profit organisation’s initiatives are encouraged to make a submission before the funding round closes on Monday, 6 May.
“We’re excited to see what projects groups in the Central West have in mind that could help address important community issues, at a grassroots level, to make life better for disadvantaged, marginalised and isolated people in the local community,” said Charitable Foundation Executive Officer Graham Batten.
“We look for projects that support our mission to help people in need”
“We look for projects that support our mission to help people in need and support social opportunity and development in our Australian regional communities, with a particular focus on projects achieving better health, social wellbeing and youth outcomes.”
The Charitable Foundation has donated more than $19.1 million for local initiatives, including more than $1.5 million for 57 projects in the Central West.
Past projects include the fit out of LiveBetter Disability Centre’s Café Connect in Orange.
To be eligible for funding, your group must be endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Type 1 Deductible Gift Recipient and hold Tax Concession Charity status, be registered with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission, and be a not-for-profit organisation which is charitable at law, and a legal entity such as an incorporate association of corporation.
