FRRR December News

FRRR December News

Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal

Like most people, the FRRR team is certainly having a busy run right to the end of the year! It's a heady mix of assessing grants and planning for the New Year.

In November, FRRR and Schools Plus co-hosted a joint meeting of the Philanthropy Australia Rural and Education Funder Groups. We presented the outcomes of a research collaboration between FRRR, Schools Plus, Myer Foundation and VFFF, with the support of skilled volunteers from Origin Foundation. We shared data to build a collective picture of what rural schools and non-profits are seeking support for and where grants are being directed, in an effort to better understand the issues and needs in rural education and the contribution being made by the philanthropic sector.

PREMIER’S FUND FOR SOCIAL COHESION

PREMIER’S FUND FOR SOCIAL COHESION

Grants and Funding

The Premier’s Fund for Social Cohesion is a small grants program that supports community-led events and activities that bring together people from diverse cultural backgrounds to discuss and celebrate diversity. It aims to build on the strengths of our multicultural society, develop stronger social cohesion and community resilience, particularly among young people (aged 12-25), and to inspire young people to stand up against the divisive forces of fear, hate and violence.

The Fund’s strategic priorities are to:

Encourage people to reflect on and celebrate the role of diversity in society
Promote intercultural and interfaith understanding, particularly among young people
Build positive cross-cultural networks
Empower people to speak about the value of diversity in society and to counter hateful and divisive messages

NSW Seniors Festival Grants

NSW Seniors Festival Grants

‘The NSW Government has allocated $200,000 seed funding for community groups, volunteer organisations and local councils to host events during the 2017 NSW Seniors Festival.

The NSW Seniors Festival, which will be held from Friday 3 March to Sunday 12 March 2017, is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere with over 500,000 seniors participating in events across NSW last year.

Seniors Festival grants support local councils, volunteer groups and community organisations with the costs of developing and hosting events and activities in their local communities.

The grants are a great way for local organisations to get involved and show their appreciation for seniors and encourage them to actively participate in their local community.

There are two funding categories available in 2017:

Grants of up to $1,000 to deliver local events or activities in their communities,
Grants from $1,001 to $5,000 for larger events which focus on this year’s theme.

Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR)

Newsletter

As Acting CEO, I am very pleased to share our 2014/15 Annual Review. You can read more below, but it was our biggest grant-making and partnerships year to date: we awarded a record $8.4m in grants, and received $9.5m in donations and grants to support a diverse range of projects across rural, regional and remote Australia.

None of this would be possible without the generous support of our donor partners and it was wonderful to be able to thank many of the donors at a small gathering in Sydney at historic Boomerang House, thanks to the generosity of Lindsay Fox. It was great to meet some more of our donors and I look forward to continuing the discussions we started. Considerable credit must also go to our former CEO Alexandra Gartmann, who has moved on into her new role as MD and CEO of Rural Bank. Alex was an inspiring leader - we thank her deeply for the four and a half years she gave to FRRR, and wish her all the very best for her future.
