In my role as your local State Member, I am always pleased to support local community groups and individuals through donations. To help create a more transparent donation process, I have started “local Hero Grants’, which are designed to provide small donations to not-for-profit community groups and individuals from the Gympie Electorate. Four grants of up to $250 each will be available through four rounds per year. They aim to provide financial support for local groups who support our community and to individuals needing assistance to travel to sporting/other competitions.
Who can apply?
- Not-for-profit community groups based in the Gympie Electorate. Groups do not need to be incorporated, but must have been in operation for at least one year
- Individuals aged 10 and over who have been selected for zone, state, national or international sporting/other events. Individuals must be a resident of the Gympie Electorate.
How often can a group apply?
Eligible groups can submit one application per round. If this application is successful, only one application is permitted within the twelve month timeframe.
How much can a group apply for?
Applications are $250 each (including GST). Four successful applications will be chosen each round.
