Local charities could benefit from a share of $60,000 in funding by mid-year, thanks to the inGrained Foundation’s inaugural Northern Rivers Large Grants Program 2019 – launching Monday 18 March.
The team were thrilled to announce this at the Foundation’s first-ever fundraising Golf Day on Friday 8 March, attended by some 18 local businesses who spent a day on the green and an afternoon in our Tasting Room, and who helped raise over $10,000 for the Grants Program funding pool.
The Northern Rivers Large Grants Program 2019 invites Northern Rivers social and environmental not-for-profits with DGR status to apply for a grant between $15,000 and $30,000. The Foundation will award up to four grants in total in May.
The focus for the Grants Program is ‘creating connection’ – so, the Foundation is asking applicants to address in detail how their project/s strengthen our community by doing this. Both inGrained Foundation and Stone & Wood feel that, regardless of the need, cultivating a connected community as an outcome is at the heart of creating meaningful change, and hope these grants will help our hard-working local not-for-profits to build and strengthen their capacity for future generations.
With Murwillumbah Open Day 2019 just around the corner, which last year raised over $30,000 for our friends at the Wedgetail Retreat via the inGrained Foundation, we’re really excited about the upcoming year’s potential.
Applications for Northern Rivers not-for-profits with DGR status open Monday 18 March and close 18 April, so start preparing your application today!
