Giving local charities a helping hand with cash grants
Aurizon 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 of Australia’s largest rail freight operator said eligible charities and not-for-profit groups have until the end of October to apply for funding for projects in four key areas.
“We support projects that fit under one of four categories including Community Safety, Health & Wellbeing, Education or the Environment,” said Mr Harding.
“Our operations span areas of Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia, and it’s in these regions where our people live and work and our trains travel.
“It’s important to give a helping hand to charities and community groups so they can continue their good work and deliver outcomes that support the quality of life for people in our communities.
“In the past, we have supported more than 370 projects through our Community Giving Fund and are looking forward to continuing this support in our final round for this year.
“If you are a charity or community group seeking financial support for projects where we operate, I encourage you to visit our website to find out more information,” said Mr Harding.
Applications for the latest round of Aurizon’s Community Giving Fund are open until 5.00pm AEDT Friday 25 October 2019. More information about the Community Giving Fund and how to apply is available by clicking here.
