Latest grant round surpasses $25 million in funding since 2003.

More than $770,000 has been distributed amongst nine charities and community groups by Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation today, supporting the delivery of projects and initiatives aimed at improving the health and social wellbeing of vulnerable people in regional New South Wales.

Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation offers two rounds of funding each year, with this round seeing the Foundation surpass $25 million in grants since 2003.

Jennifer Leslie, Chair of Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation, said the foundation’s momentous 25 million milestone made this funding round a cause for extra celebration.

“Whilst $25 million is a significant amount of money, what’s even more significant is the collective difference it’s made in thousands of lives across regional communities over the past two decades,” said Ms Leslie.

“Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation is in the privileged position of witnessing firsthand, year after year, grant after grant, the tremendous amount of hard work and dedication that goes into these projects and the meaningful, long-lasting impacts they create.

“This funding round is certainly no exception, with today’s recipients each recognised by the Foundation for their outstanding contribution to projects and initiatives that we’re confident will deliver positive outcomes for disadvantaged and at-risk people across regional NSW.”

The projects which will benefit from this funding round are:

“We look forward to working closely with these nine partners in 2023 to support their passions and bring their diverse range of projects - which address everything from mental health to domestic and family violence, to youth support and overlooked medical conditions - to fruition to be utilised by those who need them most,” Ms Leslie said.

“As we come to the close of another grant round, we acknowledge there are still so many good people doing so many good things in our local communities.

“This is why it is so important for us to continue to give back, so that we can help local groups do what they do best and make a meaningful difference in people’s lives now and for future generations to come.”

Today’s grant recipients are scheduled to launch their projects in the new year, with all expected to be completed by 2025.

Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation holds two grant giving ceremony each year and has provided more than $25 million in grants to 547 projects.
