Kedron-Wavell, a services club located in the vibrant Chermside precinct, is now accepting applications for its 2021 Community Grants Program.
Small community-based organisations, community support groups, community-based sporting organisations, and charitable organisations are welcome to apply.
Local community groups can apply for whatever amount their project requires, given that the amount they are applying for is justified in the application. The club will be giving out grants up to $10,000.
Applicants should fill out the Community Grants Program application form supplied by Kedron-Wavell. Interested groups are also encouraged to be very specific about what the funding will be used for.
In 2020, one of the recipients was The Nest Community, a self-funded organisation designed to create and nurture a sustainable and connected community for women. The Nest received $7,500 that they used to help fund their flagship program, “The Exchange Program.
Another recipient was the Gunyah Lapidary Club in Wavell Heights, which will use a $5,000 grant to update their Club house with new showcases to display the large collection of rocks, gems and crystals that they have.
Meanwhile, Kedron-Wavell’s Board of Directors will be in charge of reviewing, assessing, and approving all the applications. The process can take up to six weeks, but the club assures they will contact the applicants regardless of the outcome.
Applications will close on 31 July 2021. Applications can be directed to Club’s General Manager, sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or submitted electronically on the Community Grants website. Further details about the application process can be found at grants.kedron-wavell.com.au.
Kedron-Wavell is a grassroots organisation encouraging both former and current members of the defence service to join the sub-branch and be part of the development of the next generation while caring for and remembering those who have come before them.
The organisation supports numerous charity organisations and community-based projects.
