The Fleurieu Community Foundation has extended the closing date for two rounds of its community grants, so prompt action is required to not miss any remaining opportunities.

The Florence Wilckens Award supports senior school students in the Fleurieu region to further their studies in the performing arts, music or dance.

Applications are sought from those who show initiative and commitment in their field of interest, but may be experiencing difficulty in continuing their studies due to hardship or disadvantage.

The Disability and Community Inclusion Grant Programfocuses on those who undertake post-secondary education or training to those living with a disability.

It may also be available to people working in the disability sector who need support to further their professional development within that area. It is expected that two grants may be offered in each field.

The closing date for these grants has been extended to November 30. 

The Fleurieu Community Foundation raises money through donations, sponsorships and fundraising and has a broad vision to build a stronger and more resilient Fleurieu community through giving and grant making.

It is a local philanthropic organisation and all funds raised in the community stay in the local community.
