Community groups to receive funding through ClubGRANTS program
Representatives from the Wagga RSL Club and Rules Club Wagga will present more than $119,000 in funding to 16 community groups this Thursday, as part of the 2015 ClubGRANTS scheme.
The ClubGRANTS scheme is a state-wide initiative that provides the framework for registered clubs to directly fund local priority projects and services.
Wagga Wagga City Council coordinates the local ClubGRANTS committee made up of a representative from each of the participating clubs, Family and Community Services and a non-government representative.
“The funding provided by this scheme assists groups that may not have been able to secure financial assistance through other means, and helps to ensure valued services and projects continue to be delivered,” Director Environment and Community Services Janice Summerhayes said.
Clubs that earn more than $1 million annually in gaming machine revenue provide funding for community projects and services, and in turn receive dollar-for-dollar gaming tax deductions.
The 2015 recipients are:
Willans Hill School
Women’s Health Centre
Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge
Returned Services League of Australia (NSW Branch) – Supporting Defence Care (RSL NSW Welfare and Benevolent Institution)
War Widows Guild of Australia NSW LTD
Ashmont Breakfast Club
Sisters Housing Enterprises
Camp Quality LTD
Royal Lifesaving NSW, Riverina Office
The Leukaemia Foundation of Australia
Sturt Public School
Camp Quality Limited
Australian Red Cross
What: Presentation to community group representatives who were successful in obtaining ClubGRANTS funding
Who: Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Rod Kendall, Director Environment and Community Services Janice Summerhayes, board members from the Rules and RSL clubs, community group representatives
When: 10.30am, Thursday, 13 August 2015
Where: Mount Austin High School Hall, Leavenworth Drive
