From Stockland:

Stockland has announced the launch of its Community Grants program for 2017, inviting local community, arts and sporting groups and organisations to apply for funding to help create more cohesive, inclusive and engaging community-based programs and local opportunities.

Local community organisations are encouraged to apply for funding for an individual grant of up to $1,000 from the applicable Stockland Shopping Centre, Residential Community or Retirement Living Village in their local government area. Stockland will lend a hand to more than 280 organisations across Australia this year with around $300,000 set aside to support worthy community-building groups and activities.

Previous recipients of the Stockland Community Grants program have included local environmental groups, animal care and welfare groups, local charities, local primary and high schools seeking additional funds to launch special, community-based programs, as well as a host of local sporting, special interest and social clubs.

Stockland’s Community Grants program is accepting entries until 5pm (AEDT) on Friday 31 March 2017. Winners will be selected based on a range of criteria relating to Stockland’s key community and environmental focus areas of health and wellbeing; education; community connection; biodiversity; waste and materials; carbon and energy and water management and quality. The grant recipients will be announced from mid-June 2017.
