A helping hand for North Queensland communities impacted by the floods.

At Aurizon, we consider ourselves part of the local communities where we live and work. 

While we are working on repairing the impact of the recent floods on our operations in North Queensland we also want to help local communities recover and rebuild from this devastating weather event. 

We have established a special round of the Aurizon Community Giving Fund to provide cash grants to eligible charitable organisations with grants of up to $20,000. 

Applications close Friday 22 March 2019, 5 pm (AEST). 




Community Appeal Eligibility


Who is eligible for a Community Appeal grant:


  • Cash grants are only available for projects that affect the immediate flood areas in North Queensland between Townsville and Mount Isa. 
  • Non-profit organisations that hold an approved deductible gift recipient (DGR) status charity (Item 1) from the Australian Tax Office. If you are unsure of your organisation’s tax status, check with your financial advisor and the Australian Government’s ABN Lookup website.
  • The Aurizon Community Giving Fund is focused on the broad areas of health and wellbeing, community safety, the environment and education. All applications for an Aurizon Community Giving Fund grant must fit within at least one of these funding categories to be eligible for consideration.
