AdviceCo launches $20,000 Community Grants Program Posted on December 8, 2020
We have partnered with the Count Charitable Foundation (CCF) to launch a Community Grants Program in which charitable organisations are invited to apply for a $20,000 cash grant.
AdviceCo and CCF will each contribute $10,000 to one charitable organisation before June 2021. Applications are open from now until the end of March 2021 and involve a brief 500-word proposal of what the applicant would do with $20,000 for the local Central Coast community.
We have initiated the program off the back of an extraordinary year filled with challenges and adversities that have impacted the living conditions of members within our community.
Our community engagement program enables us to donate and participate in the community each year, but this year, we needed to think differently to address current challenges and make a meaningful difference where it counts.
We’ve consolidated our available funds and partnered with the Count Charitable Foundation to build one solid grant. We wanted to make access to the grant fair and equitable to those who have the best understanding of community needs right now, so we created the application process.
Deciding who should be the recipient of the grant will be a complex process. To ensure the approach maintains integrity and transparency, a judging panel will include:
- Barry Lambert, Founder and Chairman of the Count Charitable Foundation
- David Evers, Managing Director of AdviceCo.
- Rachel Willis, former CEO of Coast Shelter and Founder/Executive Director of Creating Community Connections
- Edgar Adams, Editor of Central Coast Business Review
Rachel Willis said: “This grant opportunity comes at a really important time for charities on the Coast, many whom have been on the front line supporting our community during a time of unprecedented demand for support. I was thrilled to be invited to be part of this program and to support a new initiative designed to make a meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of fellow Coasties.”
Charitable organisations are encouraged to apply now. In order to be successful, they must possess Deductible Gift Recipient Status 1. All conditions are currently listed here: https://adviceco.com.au/adviceco-and-count-charitable-foundation/
