In 2021, Stockland has awarded $285,000 in grants to 285 local groups, clubs and programs across Australia who support health, wellbeing, community connection, education or local environment initiatives.
$6,000 has been awarded to six local community groups in the Perth Hills region, these groups are; Brabham Primary School, Bus Preservation Society of WA, Ellenbrook Rabbitohs Ruby League Club, Lions Cancer Institute, West Coast Gymnastics and Aveley Avengers Junior Football Club.
Andrew Chapman of the Lions Cancer Institute said the grant from Stockland would be used to hold a fun day out event for local kids with cancer and terminal illnesses.
“We are extremely grateful for Stockland’s continues support over the years. The Lions Cancer Institute offers cancer screening to the local community, and last year we were able to identify cancer in more than 500 people. This allowed them to see early treatment and effectively saved hundreds of lives, highlighting the importance of funding programs such as this.”
The Stockland CARE Grants program, now in its eighth year, has distrusted over $2 million in funding to more than 2,000 local community groups nationally.
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 to help them establish more cohesive, inclusive and engaging programs.
