Aurizon Community Giving Fund
Imagine what $20,000 can do for your organisation
Are you a charity or community group in the areas of health and wellbeing, community safety, environment or education? If you are in need of funding, we can help. Twice a year, we offer cash grants up to $20,000 to eligible organisations in communities we work and live in. In almost 200 locations across Australia, we support hundreds of charities and not-for-profits.
You could be eligible to apply for a cash grant if you are a DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) organisation registered with the ATO. It doesn’t matter how big or how small your organisation is, if it benefits our communities, we want to help it succeed.
