Applications are invited from not-for-profit community-based organisations with an ABN or Incorporation Certificate for projects that help community organisations to help convert their ideas to build vibrant and sustainable rural communities into reality, in communities with a population of 15,000 people or fewer. This round funds projects starting in December 2020 and finishing by January 2022.
Through the Seeds of Renewal program, ANZ commits $250,000 which is distributed through grants of up to $15,000 to community organisations for projects that will help their community thrive.
This year Lenovo is again supporting the program, with the donation of $20,000 of Lenovo ThinkPad L380 Yoga devices to eligible community projects. This means community groups can apply for a funding grant or for IT equipment.

The ANZ Seeds of Renewal program is focused upon supporting projects that align to one of ANZ’s three focus areas.
1. environmental sustainability
2. financial wellbeing within the community
3. access to housing
