United Way Glenelg Grants Opens
Community organisations working to improve the health, education and financial stability of residents living in the Glenelg Shire region are invited to apply to United Way Glenelg (UWG) as it opens its Community Fund and Lewis Court Fund.
The UWG Community Fund has available up to $26,000 to contribute to groups in increments up to a maximum of $5,000.
UWG Executive Officer, Nicole Carr is grateful for the support for the Community Fund from individuals who make a regular contribution through Workplace Giving.
“When an individual decides to support Workplace Giving through their payroll to United Way Glenelg, they know that 100% of their donation remains local, supporting some of our most disadvantaged members living in our community.”
The Lewis Court Fund will contribute to groups that support projects and activities that directly benefit older members of the community.
“We are currently seeing a trend towards a request for funds to reduce social isolation of older people. Our connection to others enables us to survive and thrive. As we get older, loneliness can relate to health problems such as cognitive decline, depression, and heart disease.
“If your organisation has an idea for a project that addresses social isolation then please consider applying for a grant under the Lewis Court Fund,” said Ms Carr.
UWG encourages community groups to consider applying for a grant from the fund most appropriate to their area of work.
“We believe health, education, and financial stability are the building blocks of a good life, and organisations that successfully apply to the various funds will deliver benefits in these areas to residents across our community,” Ms Carr concluded.
