Local not-for-profit and community groups can now apply for grants up to $1,000 to support community-building initiatives through Stockland’s annual CARE Grants program.

Stockland’s CARE Grants program offers micro-funding to local groups, clubs and programs who support health, leisure, recreation, employment, education, social engagement and skills development initiatives.

Stockland Chief Operating Officer Michael Rosmarin said: “These investments recognise and support the local community groups and organisations that make such a difference to the social fabric of where we live, work, shop and play, now and into the future.”

Since 2014, the Stockland CARE Grants program has distributed nearly $1 million in funding to more than 800 local community groups across the country.

“We focus on building liveable, thriving communities and are proud to support local groups who make such a difference in their communities every single day,” Mr Rosmarin said.

Stockland’s CARE Grants program is accepting entries from 9am (AEDT) on Monday, February 26 until 5pm (AEDT) on Friday, March 23, 2018.

Winners will be selected based on a range of criteria relating to Stockland’s key community and environmental focus areas.

The grant recipients will be announced from week commencing June 11, 2018.
