Campbelltown charities and community groups are invited to apply for ClubGRANTS program funding from registered clubs across the city, to support their local projects.
Eighteen projects shared in more than $80,000 in funding in 2016, contributed by participating clubs including Campbelltown Catholic Club, Campbelltown RSL Club, Ingleburn RSL Club and Western Suburbs Leagues Club.
Campbelltown City Council and Sector Connect oversee and administer the program, and applications for the next round of funding can be made online between Monday 27 March and Friday 5 May.
Applications can only be made online, and an information session for interested applicants will be held from 5pm to 7pm on Thursday 23 March at Campbelltown Catholic Club, 22 Camden Road, Campbelltown, to explain the process.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the ClubGRANTS program had funded many worthy projects in past years.
“These projects are vital to the wellbeing of our community, and often provide services which residents might not otherwise be able to access,” he said.
“I encourage local charities, community and sporting groups to apply for funding which could support their project.”
Groups which received funding last year included:
- Campbelltown Rainbow Club, which received $4180 to provide individualised swimming lessons for children with a disability.
- Cancer Patient Foundation, which received $2500 for ‘Look Good Feel Better’, a free community service program dedicated to teaching cancer patients techniques to help them cope with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.
- Campbelltown 1st Ghost Scouts, one of only four disability scout groups across Australia, which received $5000 towards the upgrade and maintenance of their Scout hall.
- Defence Care RSL, which received $5000 towards enhancing the wellbeing of Australian Defence Force veterans and their families through services including counselling, financial assistance, medical equipment and household support during illness/injury.
