This year, Stockland will award more than $300,000 to organisations across the country to support local community-building initiatives.

Stockland’s CARE Grants program offers micro-funding to local groups, clubs and programs who support health, leisure, recreation, employment, education, social engagement and skills development initiatives.

Those seeking funding are encouraged to apply for a CARE Grant from the Stockland Shopping Centre, Residential Community or Retirement Living Village in their local government area via the online application form at www.stockland.com.au/caregrants.

Michael Rosmarin, Chief Operating Officer at Stockland, said: “We make direct investments in our communities through our CARE Grants and the Stockland CARE Foundation. These investments recognise and support the local community groups and organisations that make such a difference to the social fabric of where we live, work, shop and play, now and into the future.”

Since 2014, the Stockland CARE Grants program has distributed nearly $1 million in funding to more than 800 local community groups across the country.

“We focus on building liveable, thriving communities and are proud to support local groups who make such a difference in their communities every single day.” said Mr Rosmarin.

Stockland’s CARE Grants program is accepting entries from 9am (AEDT) on Monday, 26 February until 5pm (AEDT) on Friday, 23 March 2018.
