Now entering its ninth year, Stockland’s CARE Grants program is once again inviting not-for-profit and community groups to apply for funding to support local initiatives.
Last year, the CARE Grants program achieved a major milestone, surpassing $2 million in donations to over 2,000 local community groups across Australia since 2014. In 2022, a further $300,000 will be available for eligible community groups.
Amy Hogan, National Manager of Group Sustainability at Stockland, said that supporting local grassroots organisations has never been more important.
“We’re proud to once again provide financial assistance for the individuals and groups who make our communities thriving places to live, work, play and shop. Stockland is committed to finding better ways of living, and investing in local programs and opportunities is a key part of achieving this vision,” she said.
“The past few years have been particularly challenging for community organisations, and we are delighted to be able to recognise and support the vital work that these groups do in our communities every day.”
Grants are awarded across a wide variety of initiatives, with past recipients including environmental groups, animal care and welfare organisations, local primary and secondary schools, and sports and social clubs.
Stockland CARE Grants is an annual program run throughout communities located near a Stockland Retail, Residential or Retirement Living community, and provides local organisations with funding support to help them establish more cohesive, inclusive and engaging programs.
Applications open on Monday, 21 February, and close on Friday, 18 March.
