Inaugural Shoreline Community Grants awarded

We are thrilled to be able to support four worthy local organisations with grants in the first round of the Shoreline Community Grants Program. This ongoing social impact program is administered by Bendigo Bank’s Community Enterprise Foundation and is the Shoreline project’s way of ensuring our contributions back to the community are responsive and relevant. 

Round 1 2021 inaugural recipients are:

  • Redland Bay State School P&C
  • Victoria Point State High School P&C
  • The Cage Youth Foundation 
  • Redland Bay Tennis Club.

Their programs and initiatives will benefit the wider Redland Bay community through providing fencing for a student-run native bee program, playgroup resources, tools for a youth engagement project and an ‘Inclusion for all’ disability tennis program working with south east special schools. 

We were able to catch up and congratulate some of them before the lockdown and chat about their upcoming projects.

Round 2 opens on 8 September 2021 with a total funding pool of $5000. If you know a community group or not-for-profit organisation that you think might benefit from this grants program, reach out to us to chat ideas and to register for an information pack. Program Snapshot
