Grants open for volunteer organisations in Murray
The Hon Damian Drum MP has called on community organisations in Murray to apply for a share of up to $20 million in funding to support the efforts of their volunteers.
Mr Drum said applications for the Volunteer Grants round were now open.
“Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 will help community organisations buy equipment such as laptops, pay fuel costs, train volunteers and improve their fundraising,” Mr Drum said.
“Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and by continuing to help each other and work together; we are building a stronger and safer community.
“People in rural and regional Australia are volunteering professionals. From cutting oranges for the half time break at footy to running major events for our clubs and organisations, we are experts. These Volunteer Grants are a great way for clubs and organisations to thank the hard work all of our volunteers do,” Mr Drum said.
“I encourage all not-for-profit organisations in Murray to apply for the Volunteer Grants to help make the work of our volunteers easier, safer and more enjoyable.”

Applications close Tuesday 18 September 2018.
