Council offers donations to assist Not-For-Profit Community Groups

Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said there were various categories of funding available and the Community Donations Program generally attracted wide community interest.

“Applications are preferred to be received by April 30 but may still be accepted after this, depending on the availability of remaining funds in each category,” Cr Burnett said.

“In past years, this funding has been highly beneficial offering a helping hand to many local groups and organisations.”

Organisations eligible for a donation are able to submit one application per category in any financial year.

  • Category 2: Heritage Museums
