Recipient of AdviceCo and CCF $20,000 Community Grant Announced Posted on November 4, 2021

AdviceCo & CCF $20k Community Grant Recipient

AdviceCo is thrilled to announce that the recipient of their inaugural $20,000 Community Grant is Central Coast Kids in Need.

Applications were assessed by four judges, including AdviceCo Managing Director, David Evers; Barry Lambert from the Count Charitable Foundation; Rachel Willis from Creating Community Connections; and Edgar Adams from The Central Coast Business Review.

The decision was incredibly difficult. With more than 45 applications submitted by eligible charities and Not-for-Profit organisations, a number of very worthy campaigns were unable to be supported.

“The quality of applications really opened my eyes to both the high need of support in our community, and the importance of the work our charities do to empower people from all walks of life to live well,” said David.

Central Coast Kids in Need is operated by approximately 18 unpaid volunteers who are passionate about supporting local families with children who are sick and require medical treatment. They provide financial support to those families who become stressed by accommodation costs, high-cost prescription items, specialised formulas, quality-of-life equipment and travel expenses. Their goal is to keep families united throughout hospital stays and treatment.

Treasurer, Rhonda Doyle and Secretary, Lorraine Churchill of Central Coast Kids in Need were overjoyed to receive the $20,000 booster to their cause.

“We’re in the business of supporting families to be together through some of the toughest experiences of their lives. Our families are faced with more than a sick child – which is incredibly distressing in itself. They’re also faced with logistical stressors such as reduced work, increased care requirements, long distances and tough decisions that come at great emotional and financial cost. This money will be spent on alleviating some of those logistical pressures at a most vulnerable time,” she said.

Rachel Willis, Founder and Executive Director of Creating Community Connections and former CEO for Coast Shelter said the quality of the applications was exceptional.

“It is applications like these that show just how generous and industrious our charitable organisations are for those in need of support.

“We are really excited to be able to support Central Coast Kids in Need and can’t wait to see some of the outcomes as time goes on. We hope charities of the Central Coast will continue to submit their applications each year,” she said.

Following the program’s success, David Evers is happy to confirm that it will be on offer again.

The AdviceCo Community Grant is co-funded by AdviceCo and the Count Charitable Foundation who each contribute $10,000. Judges include Barry Lambert, Founder and Chairman of the Count Charitable Foundation; Edgar Adams, Editor of the Central Coast Business Review; Rachel Willis, Founder of Creating Community Connections and David Evers, Managing Director of AdviceCo. This is the inception year for the grant.
