Third round grant recipients announced
Traditionally we support our amazing charity partners via an annual grant program, but at times like this it is important we have the flexibility to step up and support the recovery process.
With that thought in mind, we have decided to donate $5,000 raised from our recent Business of Beers fundraising lunch to GIVIT’s storms and flooding appeal. We believe GIVIT is a remarkable charity and their giving model is highly effective in supporting local charities and community organisations to deliver vital goods and services directly to those in need.
Great news, the love doesn’t stop there. Heritage Bank have generously donated $100,000 to the Foundation allowing us to contribute $105,000 to GIVIT’s appeal.
If you would like to support the Foundation’s Storm and Flood appeal to support QLD and NSW flood-impacted communities you can donate online now.
Each charity partner has an extremely important story to share and we have worked with them to create a series of videos that allows you to witness the impact their support has had on someone’s life.
Please take the time to watch these short videos as they are a powerful illustration of how our charity partners have used the Foundations funding to change life trajectories and builds stronger communities.
The generous support we receive from the Heritage Bank staff is absolutely amazing. They play a major role in supporting our charity partners through donating, volunteering and helping to create awareness.
It was sensational to see so many people out enjoying themselves at The Rock Toowoomba while getting behind a worthy cause. What made this event even more special is that all our wonderful prizes were 100% donated – a true example of the community coming together.
