Applications are now open for the City of Marion’s Community Grants Program to support local not-for-profit groups with projects and activities that benefit the Marion community.
“Over the many years of this program, Marion Council has allocated over $1.3 million to help a variety of local groups large and small to assist with their work in the community,” Mayor of Marion Kris Hanna said.
“Last round, 11 organisations shared approximately $49,000 in funding for a wide range of projects including a girls cricket program at Sheidow Park, a multicultural water safety program, a cardiac defibrillator for the Park Holme Community Hall and a First Nations mural at the Warradale Community Children’s Centre.
“So if you have an idea for your group that will greatly benefit the residents of Marion, please head to our website to get more details about how to apply for our community grants.”
Applications close 1 March 2022. Organisations that meet the eligibility criteria are encouraged to apply for grants up to $5,000. Every funding round one grant can be provided up to $10,000.
Applications that support activities that are inclusive, accessible, demonstrate environmental responsibility and encourage greater community participation and wellbeing are highly considered.
Applicants are encouraged to consider the values and policies stated in the City of Marion’s Community Vision and Strategic Plan and the Equity, Access and Social Inclusion Policy Statement.
Visit the City of Marion website to find out more information and apply now. Grants are open until 1 March 2022.
