Donations Strengthening Coffs Harbour's Community Ties

Coffs Harbour City

City of Coffs Harbour is driving a 'what goes around, comes around' program for the benefit of the local community.

Applications have opened for the 2024-25 Community Donations Program – a pot of money earmarked to assist groups with initiatives for the greater good.

The program is open to not-for-profit organisations who are either based in the Coffs Harbour local government area or service clients here.

They can apply for up to $5,000 to go toward activities or services that will bring a direct benefit to the wider community.

Projects supported in the past include New Year's Eve fireworks, Christmas carol events, annual school presentations, the North Coast Academy of Sport, Coffs Harbour Eisteddfod and the Japanese Children's Day Festival.

Donations can also be made toward rates costs for community organisations leasing City properties.

"It's a helping hand by the City for groups contributing positively to the rich fabric of local life," City of Coffs Harbour General Manager Natalia Cowley said.

Applications for a donation will be a competitive process. To apply for a donation visit here. Applications close Friday 14 June 2024.
