The Queensland Country Good for Good Community Grants program provides funding of between $5000 and $30,000 for projects which makes a difference to Queensland communities.

Queensland Country Credit Union Local Manager Steve Tyson said grant recipients were also required to support charity.

“After receiving their funding, grant recipients agree to forward on the goodwill by fundraising 10% of their grant amount for our charity partner,” Mr Tyson said.

“We are once again proud to be partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities, and will be boosting the fundraising efforts of our grant recipients with an additional $20,000 contribution from the Credit Union.”

Mr Tyson said he hoped not-for-profit groups in Jimboomba would apply for funding.

“We’re looking to support projects in the areas of sport and recreation; health; education; environment; and the arts, culture and heritage,” he said.

“In particular, we’d love to help get projects off the ground that benefit under-represented groups, increase community participation or help to keep people safe.

“We know there’s a lot of good being done at a grass-roots level in our community and we’re excited to be a part of that.”

The program has been running for two years.
