Murray Irrigation funds offered


Community groups across the region are invited to submit applicatio­ns for Murray Irrigation’s annual Sponsorshi­p Program.

This program supports a broad range of community projects and activities each year which ameliorate, promote, and embed safety and wellbeing within the community.

Applicatio­ns can be for financial support of up to $5000 or for in kind support of water, equipment usage, or administra­tive support.

Funding is for activities to be undertaken in the 2022/23 financial year. Applicatio­ns open this Friday, and close on May 18. Last year eight projects across the Murray Irrigation footprint were funded, and these included school tree planting, art, tennis court upgrades, Menshed facilities, education, rescue squad equipment and irrigated cropping research. ‘‘We take pride in supporting healthy, viable and vibrant local communitie­s by assisting projects and initiative­s across our area of operations that align with our company values,’’ Murray Irrigation chair Steve Fawns said.

The sponsorshi­p is in addition to the financial support provided by Murray Irrigation to the Learn to Swim program across the region, which this year involves 18 schools and three swimming clubs. Learn to Swim has been supported by Murray Irrigation for nearly 20 years.

▯ Clubs and organisati­ons who want to submit an applicatio­n to the Murray Irrigation Sponsorshi­p Program can download an applicatio­n form and guidelines from the Sponsorshi­p page on the Murray Irrigation website — https://www.murrayirri­ company/our-community/ giving-back.
