Mounties Group has pledged more than $650,000 to local community groups this year despite an incredibly challenging two years for the club and hospitality industry,
For the first time, Mounties Group’s contributions will also benefit the Central Coast after their successful amalgamations with Club Wyong and Halekulani Bowling Club earlier this year.
Some of the community organisations to benefit are Camp Breakaway at San Remo, The Lakes Surf Life Saving Club at Budgewoi, Ted Noffs Foundation, Australian Foundation for Disability, Autism Advisory and Support Service, Camp Quality, OzHarvest, Police Citizens Youth Clubs NSW, Miracle Babies Foundation, The Shepherd Centre, Queenscliff Surf Life Saving Club and Volunteer Marine Rescue.
Grants are funded from Mounties Groups clubs including Mounties, Triglav, Mekong, Harbord Diggers, Halekulani Bowling Club and Club Wyong.
This year’s bumper contribution, almost double the2020 ClubGRANTS, is in addition to the Mounties ground-breaking multi-million-dollar partnership deal with CareFlight, announced last month, as well as other charitable donations the group makes each year.
In total this past financial year, Mounties Group donated an astronomical record of almost $10M to various local community support initiatives, further proving that Mounties Group operates to improve the lives of its members and their local communities.
Mounties Group president, Kevin Ingram, said the pandemic had made the group even more conscious to innovate and support more local community groups in bigger and better ways.
“NSW communities are filled with such incredibly talented and passionate people whose sole purpose is to help their neighbours live better lives,” he said.
“COVID has increased the need to support these causes, not lessened it,” he said.
“The ClubGRANTs program has come under scrutiny over the years, but we hear more and more from those that we support that without the funds, they simply would not be able to carry out the work which is why it is an important part of Club operations.”
“These ClubGRANTS are just one of the many ways Mounties Group is proactive in providing support, services and facilities for the betterment of our local community,” he concluded.
