Goondiwindi Regional Council
 Community Donations and Grants

Council has available limited financial assistance to support community organisations that make a positive contribution to the quality of life in the Goondiwindi Regional Council area.
Council has in place a Community Grants and Donations Policy to provide a platform on which decisions regarding allocation of donations and grants are to be based. A copy of this policy can be found at the bottom of this page.
It is strongly recommended that this policy is read before completing any applications.
Community Donations Program
  • Applications may be made at any time throughout the year, however completed application forms must be lodged a minimum of 60 days prior to the event or request for in-kind assistance.
  • Donations will only be given up to and including $450. Application for funds of $451 or more should be made under Council's Community Grants Program.
Community Grants Program
  •  Organisations seeking funding of $451 or more are required to provide Council with detailed information regarding the proposed use of the funds and how this use would benefit the Community. Please be aware that as per Council's updated policy, there is a new condition "1.14. Applicants will be required to provide a copy of the latest audited financial statements where the funding sought is $2,000 (Ex GST) or more".
  • Funding will be provided on a ‘project' or ‘program' basis.
  • An initial funding round will be called in July each year for projects proposed to be undertaken in the current financial year, with a subsequent round to be called in January or February each year subject to funds availability.
All applications will be assessed on merit against eligibility and selection criteria. Such applications will be assessed in an open and equitable manner. The level of assistance available is limited by Council's budget decision. No applicant can be guaranteed funding nor can any applicant be guaranteed to receive the full amount requested.
 
Application forms for both programs are available at all of Council's administration offices at the botom of this page. Applications should address the specified criteria, and must be lodged with Council by the closing date. Further information can be obtained by contacting Council Administration on 46717400.
