Community Donation Applications

Annual Community Donation Applications

Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) has traditionally supported local sporting clubs, schools, community groups and individuals through the provision of financial, and in kind, support.

CGRC continues to provide that support to its communities now and into the future, through its annual community donations program, which opens on 1 April each year and closes 31 May.
To assist Council’s budgetary framework, only one round of donations will be determined in each financial year.

In making an application you will be required to address the following:

  1. The persons or association have bona fide need of the donation.
  2. The justification for the donation – (why should the wider body of taxpayers support this activity or association?).
  3. The benefit to and participation of the wider community in the activities for which the donation is sought,
  4. The measurable outcomes against which the success of the donation will be assessed.
  5. Specific details of the association’s plans to reduce its dependence on Council for donations in the future.
  6. The date for review of the donation (for multi-year donations), and
  7. An acknowledgement that future donation will be contingent on meeting or exceeding agreed outcomes.
