Back for its second round this year, The Sanctuary Community Fund will provide up to $50,000 in grants to deliver grassroots community building programs across the Moreton Bay Region.

Eligible organisations including schools, community groups and sports clubs in Warner, Strathpine, Bray Park, Cashmere, Brendale, Albany Creek and Eatons Hill are being urged to apply.

Applications have been extended until October 23 via the Ausbuild website.

Ausbuild Joint Managing Director Michael Loney says the company is looking forward to assisting more local organisations to deliver critical projects and programs across the region after a successful first round of grant funding was delivered to seven local organisations in April.

|“Our local kids’ footy clubs, schools, kindergartens and associated P&Cs, family support organisations, and environmental protection groups are the backbone of our local communities,” Mr Loney says.|

“As a local builder and developer proudly delivering new communities across Moreton Bay, we have a responsibility to foster sustainable growth.

“Our vision to create well-planned, well-connected communities firmly places people at the heart of that commitment.”

Making a difference

The first round of funding provided almost $50,000 in grants to local organisations to purchase new equipment and uniforms, to update and upgrade sporting facilities, and support a program that assists vulnerable young mothers.

|“It was so great to see the fund come to life through these important initiatives, and we hope this second round will have a ripple effect by benefiting more people and organisations across the region,” he says.|

Applicants should demonstrate how their projects contribute to the pillars of a healthy community. These include sporting and recreation, health and wellbeing, environment and sustainability, infrastructure, and diversity and inclusiveness.

Projects can be new or upgrades to facilities, equipment and supplies, new or expanded services and programs, and community events, training and workshops.
