From today, Aurizon – Australia’s largest rail freight operator – is inviting community groups and charities located across the Company’s operations to apply for cash grants of up to $20,000 through the latest round of its Community Giving Fund.
Andrew Harding, Managing Director & CEO said eligible charities and not-for-profit groups have until the end of June to apply for funding for projects in four key areas.
“We are seeking applications from local charities that are undertaking projects contributing to Community Safety, Health & Wellbeing, Education or the Environment,” said Mr Harding.
“We are a company with operations spanning areas across Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia, and it’s important that we play a strong role in supporting the communities where our people live and work.
“Since our Community Giving Fund was established in 2011, we have proudly supported more than 350 very worthwhile projects across our communities.
“We are looking forward to continuing this support through this next round of our Community Giving Fund.
“If you are a charity or community group seeking financial support for projects where we operate, I strongly encourage you to visit our website to find out more information,” said Mr Harding.
