$800,000 on offer for local charities and community groups


Local not-for-profit and charity organisations working to overcome disadvantage or create opportunities for marginalised or isolated people on the Central Coast can apply for funds through the latest Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation funding round.

The Charitable Foundation has $800,000 on offer to support new or existing projects in the Central Coast, Hunter, Central West, New England, Mid North Coast and Northern Rivers regions of NSW.

Newly appointed Charitable Foundation executive officer, Carly Bush, said with the impacts of COVID-19 hitting support organisations and charities hard, communities need funding more than ever.

“Some charities and regional communities aren’t eligible or can’t access government funding and infrastructure, so the Charitable Foundation tries to fill those gaps,” she said.

“We’re keen to support initiatives that rewrite the future of people in need, now and for generations to come. Especially those with a focus on health, young people and social wellbeing.”  

Recently, We Care Connect received $48,000 for a vehicle to collect and deliver more than 45,000 essential items to disadvantaged babies and young children across the Central Coast.

Applications close on April 14.
