The Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation (EPCF) wish to award grants to charitable incorporated organisations and community groups on the Eyre Peninsula.

The EPCF believe that local charitable organisations, community groups and proactive and visionary individuals can make a real difference to the development of our communities, and want to provide grants to assist these groups to give even better services in the future. The EPCF is keen to respond to new issues and initiatives as they arise and will listen to unusual requests – particularly ideas for community projects that are normally not eligible for assistance from traditional funding programs.

This community grant round for 2018 opens 9am Monday 1st October 2018, and applications will be received up to 5pm Monday 22nd October 2018. Grants of between $500 and $2000 are available.

In assessing applications for a grant the EPCF Grants Committee will give priority to projects which are locally run and led, use volunteers for most tasks, involve minority or disadvantaged groups, are innovative and demonstrate community collaboration, are focused on sustainable long term community development and capacity building, and demonstrate good operational and management practices. If your project satisfies at least some of those criteria, the EPCF encourage you to apply.

Full details and application forms can be obtained on the Foundation’s website at www.epcf.com.au, via email to admin@epcf.com.au, or by phoning 0400 685 520 from the 1st October 2018.

Grower Donations to Assist the Eyre Peninsula Community

Help the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation reach its 50 Tonne Goal.
The Foundation now has an NGR number, making it easy for growers to donate a small portion of their grain deliveries to the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation.
Such donations will become part of the Foundation’s corpus in perpetuity, so that earnings on the corpus can be distributed year after year as grants to community groups on Eyre Peninsula.
If you’re a grain grower and are considering putting a small quantity of grain at the end of harvest to a good cause, then the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation may be just the right choice to make.

To discuss this donation please contact Susan at admin@epcf.com.au or 0400 685 520
