Volunteering WA, with thanks to ongoing support from Lotterywest, is pleased to announce that we are once again offering our members and volunteer involving organisations around the state a fantastic opportunity to apply for a grant of up to $1,000 to organise an event which recognises and thanks volunteers during National Volunteer Week which will be held on 18 – 24 May 2020.
In previous years, organisations have acknowledged the wonderful work their volunteers do by events such as team building days; hiring a motivational guest speaker to visit the office; treating the volunteers to lunch, dinner or even taking them out for a movie night.
CEO of Volunteering WA Tina Williams said that volunteers are the backbone of communities around the state, and it was important to acknowledge their contributions.
“Volunteers and organisations who generously and regularly give their time to making our communities better places to live should be recognised and celebrated, however there is often a lack of funding to do so,” Ms Williams said.
“The National Volunteer Week 2020 Grants provide this funding and are a great way for organisations to say thank you to their volunteers.”
Volunteering WA looks forward to receiving submissions at https://volunteeringwa.org.au/nvw by Sunday 8 March 2020.
