HASTINGS not-for-profit and charity organisations are encouraged to attend a free workshop on how to apply for grant funding from Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation for local community projects and initiatives.
Charitable Foundation Executive Officer Graham Batten will host a free workshop on Wednesday, September 27 from 10am at The Westport Club.
“The workshop will explain how to apply for grant funding, how applications are assessed and the types of community projects that have been funded to date,” Mr Batten said.
The Charitable Foundation provides funding for important community projects which improve the health and social wellbeing of disadvantaged, marginalised and isolated people, and projects which improve the life outcomes of at-risk or disadvantaged young people throughout the Hunter, Mid North Coast, Central West, Central Coast, Northern Rivers and New England regions.
