Micro Grants Now Available For Federation Volunteers

Volunteer Week Micro Grants

To celebrate National Volunteer Week, Federation Council is offering twenty grants of $250 to not-for-profits, 355 committees, clubs and local community groups, organisations or schools with a volunteer branch or committee, to assist with commemorating and appreciating their volunteers’ contributions.

The Volunteer Week Micro Grants will provide groups with the opportunity to tailor their National Volunteer Week celebrations held 20 – 26 May 2024, to best suit their volunteers. The grants can be used to fund a range of gratitude celebrations such as afternoon teas, certificates of appreciation or award presentations, outings, luncheons, barbeques, or even go towards training and development.

Federation Council Mayor Cr Pat Bourke, said Council are thrilled to announce the launch of this pilot micro grant program which is targeted to acknowledge volunteers within the Federation LGA.

“This program not only recognises the incredible efforts of our region’s dedicated volunteers but can also amplify the impact of their work and inspire others to get involved in serving our community. We are excited to see what upcoming celebrations unfold and hope they provide a great opportunity for volunteers to come together and enjoy some well-deserved recognition and appreciation for their hard work.”

The application process consists of a simple online form with a few questions. Applications will be assessed chronologically, on an ongoing rolling basis until funds are expended. As a non-competitive application process, submissions will be assessed against if they do or do not meet the eligibility requirements. Groups are encouraged to apply quickly for this opportunity.
