2021 Grant Recipients

SWCF Board Chair David McIntyre

South West Community Foundation continues to support south west Victoria community groups with the release of the 2021 Grant Recipient list, as 21 south west Victorian community groups continue their work and share in over $100,000 allocated.

With the release of the 2021 Grant Recipients list the Foundation will pass the milestone of $1m given back to the community, across 13 years of operation. This funding round will also see the single biggest grant allocation of $31,420 to the Koroit Rail Trail Committee to help build a BBQ area at the Koroit Railway Station.

SWCF Board Chairman David McIntyre said it is important to continue to support different community organisations in the current COVID climate.

“It is hard for small organisations to keep going in times like these, but these groups are needed in our communities now more than ever,” Mr McIntyre said. “Like all community organisations in south west Victoria, these groups are working hard to build strength and resilience in our community.

“To be able to offer some financial support to these groups allows them to continue to work and support all members of the community. It is truly an honour to help support these groups to continue their work and improve the lives of all people in the south west.”
