Each year Gardiner Foundation offers community grants of up to $5000 to organisations in Victorian dairy communities. These grants are funded by Gardiner and distributed by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR).
This initiative forms part of Gardiner’s commitment to strengthen dairy communities, through the People Development portfolio. The aim of this program is to strengthen small Victorian dairy communities, by helping build their capacity to deal with local issues and enhance existing community infrastructure.
Every year Gardiner allocates $120,000 to support the continuation of this well regarded community grants program.
Since it began in 2002 over $2 million has been successfully funded to 500 grants across the Victorian dairy community.
Applications invite organisations which:
- Are not-for-profit with an ABN or Incorporation Number.
- Are in each of the three Victorian dairy regions – Gippsland, South-Western and Northern Victoria. Projects must be located in these dairy regions, or directly benefit residents of these regions.
- Priority will be given to projects that assist in strengthening small rural communities; building their capacity to deal with local issues or enhancing existing community infrastructure.
- Projects must commence after July 2023 and must offer a clear public benefit, be for charitable purposes, and address a need in the community.
- Letters of support and quotes strengthen applications and are highly regarded.
- Grant recipients will be notified in June 2023, and invited to attend a formal presentation ceremony in July to receive their grant.
Before applying, please review the Guidelines carefully.
FRRR uses an online grants administration system. Applications for the 2023 Gardiner Dairy Foundation Communities Grants program will be submitted via FRRR’s Grants Gateway online portal.
