Community donations, grants, funding & incentive programs, Koroit
The Koroit and District Sub Fund of South West Community Foundation came about through the closure of the Koroit and District Health Service. The Service’s Board decided to direct the residual funds to the Foundation for the benefit of the local community. The funds were received in 2013 and 2014 and are now invested and generating interest to grant to charitable community projects in Koroit and surrounding areas.
Following the official development and announcement of the Koroit and District Sub Fund in May 2013, the Koroit and District Sub Fund made its first grants in 2013 and has continued to make grants annually.
Mr Brian Trotter chairs the Sub Fund Advisory Committee which is made up of local people. Advisory Committee members donate their time and expertise to advise the Board of South West Community Foundation on granting priorities for the local area. Advisory Committee Members of Koroit and District Sub Fund:
- Mr Brian Trotter, South West Community Foundation Director
- Mr Leon Carey
- Ms Lorraine Mielnik
- Mr Laurence Gleeson
- Mr Jim Madden
The Koroit and District Sub Fund is keen to support the development of community projects and welcome enquiries.
