Local community groups benefit from Brisbane Airport grants
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has distributed more than A$18,000 in grants to 19 charitable organisations and community groups as part of its philanthropic Community Giving Fund.
BAC acknowledges in the current environment, it is now more important than ever to support organisations doing exceptional work in our community.
Twice a year BAC calls for applications for grants for projects that provide health and wellbeing, safety, sport, education and environment programs, or other community benefits and initiatives.
Since the launch of its Community Giving Fund in 2015, BAC has donated nearly A$300,000 to help smaller charities continue the fantastic work they do within the community.
In addition to philanthropic donations, BAC distributes more than A$1 million in sponsorship support to a wide range of community-focused corporations each year.
BAC’s major charitable partnerships include The Royal Flying Doctor Service, RACQ Life Flight and Surf Life Saving Queensland.
Recipients of donations from BAC’s latest round of Community Giving include The Gap State School P&C; Pullenvale State School; and Reef Check Australia, an innovative, environmental charity dedicated to providing ways for the community to better understand, appreciate and protect oceans and marine environments.
Other recipients range from Upper Mount Gravatt Kindergarten, the New Farm & District Historical Society and Forest Lake Men’s Shed Inc to Corinda Bowls Club.
