Stockland has announced the recipients of its 2020 CARE Grants, awarding $276,000 in grants to 266 local groups, clubs and programs across Australia who support health, wellbeing, community connection, education or local environmental initiatives.
Amy Hogan, National Manager of Group Sustainability at Stockland, said: “Stockland is proud to once again lend a hand to hundreds of community groups across Australia.
“We wholeheartedly recognise the contribution that these groups make to their community every single day. We’re pleased to continue our support of local organisations whose great work, dedication and commitment are an essential part of helping any community to thrive.”
The Stockland CARE Grants program, now in its seventh year, has distributed over $1.7 million in funding to more than 1,500 local community groups nationally.
Earlier this year, Stockland also pledged a donation of $500,000 to organisations including the Foundation for Regional and Rural Renewal (FRRR) and other organisations supporting the relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts of the Australian bushfires.
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.
