Does your organisation need funding for projects? The City of Greater Geraldton is working in conjunction with Lotterywest to present a free forum for all local organisations.
Lotterywest work with community organisations that provide services, support and inspiration to the people of Western Australia via grants that are intended to complement other sources of support, including a contribution from an organisation’s own resources.
This free Lotterywest Grants forum is the chance for your organisation to gain a better understanding of the type of projects and organisations that are eligible for Lotterywest funding.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor, Ian Carpenter, said the forum would be extremely beneficial to local community groups and organisations.
“This is an opportunity to hear about activities and projects which could attract Lotterywest support, the information required for anapplication and handy hints to aid you in your grant applications,” he said.
“Lotterywest give grants totalling millions of dollars and a lot of organisations don’t know that they’re eligible for these.
“I would highly encourage organisations to send a representative to this forum as they will receive vital information which could enhance the likelihood of being successful with grant applications and result a positive impact on your local organisation.”
Every year over 1,000 not-for-profit groups share in Lotterywest Grants totalling millions of dollars with many local organisations not on this list. This forum will increase your chances of gettingyour organisation on the list.
The forum will be held on Thursday, August 20 at 5:15pm for a 5:30pm start at the City Function Room on Cathedral Avenue.
It is open to representatives of all community groups and there will be opportunities for one-on-one meetings after the presentations.
