SHELL’S QGC COMMUNITIES FUND WELCOMES 2019 APPLICATIONS

Shell’s QGC business supports community organisations in the Gladstone region to deliver community projects through Shell’s QGC Communities Fund and Sponsorships and Donations Programs. Shell’s QGC Communities Fund has been in place since 2015 and was introduced in direct response to community feedback.

The fund provides grants between $10,000 and $40,000 to community-based organisations in the Gladstone region. Traditional Owner groups with agreements with Shell’s QGC business are also able to apply for projects covering the Gladstone regions.

In previous funding rounds grants have been shared across the region including Gladstone itself, Benaraby, Boyne Island, South End, Agnes Water and Baffle Creek. Since its beginning the fund has disbursed $1.3 million, benefitting 44 grassroots projects.

The fund focuses on activities that contribute to one or more of the following areas:
