Greater Charitable Foundation has committed more than $1 million in funding to six charity partners as part of its 2019 grant round, bringing the Foundation’s total contribution to community groups to more than $9 million since its establishment in 2011.

A total of six grant recipients were selected, including both new and previously funded partners, each receiving between $33,000 and $260,000 to deliver crucial services to those in need across the Hunter, North Coast, Northern Rivers, Illawarra, Central Coast, Central West, New England and the Riverina region. 

Greater Charitable Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Anne Long, said the Foundation, now in its eighth year of giving, is delighted with the calibre of organisations and programs they will be supporting over the next 12+ months and is looking forward to the positive impact they will have on their respective communities.

“The response to this year’s grants program was unprecedented, with almost 230 applications being submitted; more than any other year. The shortlisting and assessment process was not easy given the quality of submissions, but we are extremely happy with the organisations we have chosen to partner with this year,” Anne said.

“This year’s allocation of more than $1 million takes our total funding since establishment to more than $9 million, which has been allocated to 31 charity partners, impacting more than 32,000 beneficiaries.

“We are exceptionally proud of the positive impact we have made over the past eight years and are looking forward to working with our latest group of partners to help change the lives of those they support.”

The Foundation’s six new partners will join the ranks of five existing charities who remain under contract to deliver prevention and support programs across the areas of health, youth development, education and medical research.
