Are you a charity or community group working in the areas of health and wellbeing, community safety, environment or education? Are you in need of more funding? It doesn't matter how big or how small the charity is, if it benefits our communities, we want to help it succeed.
The latest round of the Aurizon Community Giving Fund has now closed, with our next Round of grants opening in September 2017 (date to be confirmed).
From Townsville to Geraldton, we deliver much more than products and commodities. Since 2011, we have been giving back to local communities we live and work in, supporting over 240 charities and not-for-profits in education, community safety, environment as well as health and wellbeing. We deliver hope and opportunity, engaging the community in a more meaningful way.
