You can make a big difference with an ETC grant

PEOPLE interested in making a positive difference to their community have just over a month to apply for funding from not-for-profit company Enterprise and Training Company Limited.

ETC chairman Rod McKelvey said ETC was making available $100,000 in community grants as part of the ETC community support fund.

"The fund is designed to help organisations improve the social and economic development of local communities," Mr McKelvey said.

Mr McKelvey said organisations could apply for up to $15,000 each and applications would be assessed based on how well they met the following principles:

  • Provide the greatest benefit to the most number of people
  • Be self-sustainable after receipt of funding
  • Show potential to use ETC community support funding to leverage funding or contributions from other sources
  • Assist regional development, grow employment or involve education
  • Cater to youth or youth development
  • Seek to improve the quality of life in the local community or involve community development
  • Contribute to the economic and social development in the areas where ETC operates

Last year the fund supported seven local groups: Coffs Harbour Preschool Association; Orara Valley Fair; Coffs Coast and Clarence Can Do Cancer Trust; Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service; Coffs Harbour Showground; Corindi Pony Club and Marine Rescue Woolgoolga.

For further information about the ETC community support fund and/or to apply visit etcltd.com.au.

Applications for the current round of funding are now open and close on Thursday, February 28.
