Com­mu­nity Fund

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

WE ALL know com­mu­nity groups have a dif­fi­cult time rais­ing enough funds these days just to meet their ba­sic needs. There’s rarely enough left over to in­vest in worth­while projects, even when do­ing so would lead to sav­ings in the medium to long-term. Er­gon Energy un­der­stands the chal­lenges fac­ing not-for-profit groups across re­gional and ru­ral Queens­land and is try­ing in a small way to help some of them through our Com­mu­nity Fund. In­di­vid­ual groups can ap­ply for grants up to $5000, with $50,000 avail­able in to­tal, for projects that de­liver energy ef­fi­ciency or elec­tri­cal safety. Last year, 14 groups re­ceived grants un­der this pro­gram for a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties that also raised aware­ness of the im­por­tance of energy ef­fi­ciency and elec­tri­cal safety among their mem­bers. I want to take this op­por­tu­nity to re­mind groups that ap­pli­ca­tions for the next fund­ing round will close at 5pm on Mon­day, Septem­ber 14. For more de­tails or to ob­tain an ap­pli­ca­tion form, visit www.er­gon.com.au/about-us/com­mu­nity-part­ner­ships /com­mu­nity-fund. Ian McLeod Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Er­gon Energy
