Workshops for not-for-profit and charitable organisations applying for funding

We donated $820,000 to projects and causes led by community organisations in the first funding round of 2017.

Friday, 8 September, 2017

We're hosting workshops in East Maitland, Port Macquarie and Orange during September, to help not-for-profit and charitable organisations understand how to apply for grant funding toward local community projects and initiatives.

Executive Officer Graham Batten will host the workshops, and encouraged staff and volunteers from local community-based not-for profit and Deductible Gift Recipient organisations to attend one of the free workshops.

"I’ll explain how to apply for grant funding, how applications are assessed and the types of community projects that have been funded to date," Mr Batten said.

"Not-for-profit and charity organisations will also have the opportunity to network with other groups, and prepare funding submissions before the next round of grant applications closes on 16 October 2017."

The Foundation provides funding for important community projects that improve the health and social wellbeing of disadvantaged, marginalised and isolated people and projects, which improve the life outcomes of at risk or disadvantaged young people throughout the Hunter, Mid North Coast, Central West, Central Coast, Northern Rivers and New England regions.

Established in 2003 as a gift to the community as part of Newcastle Permanent Building Society’s 100th anniversary, the Charitable Foundation distributes more than $1.5 million each year to local not-for-profit organisations and has committed more than $16.7 million for over 400 important community projects and initiatives.
