Awabakal Ltd is pleased to announce the opening of Applications for the 2021 Community Sponsorship program. The program was established in the 1980’s, to provide financial support to community members to assist them with the costs in attending sporting, educational, cultural and leadership events.
With the support of nib foundation, we will be opening two rounds of funding in 2021 to encourage and enable our people to achieve in their chosen field.
“The partnership with nib foundation is really exciting as both organisations share common values of encouraging our community to live healthier and more active lives”, said Raylene Gordon, CEO of Awabakal Ltd.
“Awabakal’s Community Sponsorship program is a fantastic initiative that we’re proud to be supporting. Our funding will assist Awabakal to continue this important work with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, enabling participation, building self-confidence, developing role models and celebrating achievements in a variety of fields,” said Amy Tribe, nib foundation Executive Officer.
Applications are now now closed. Stay tuned for the next round, set to open in August, 2021.
