Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration Grants Program 2016


The Department of Local Government and Communities is currently seeking applications for the Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration Grants Program 2016.

Funding assistance of up to $1,000 will be available to communities throughout Western Australia to hold an event or display on Thank a Volunteer Day/International Day of Volunteers, 5 December 2016.  The aim of the Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration Grants Program is to support both metropolitan and regional communities to celebrate Thank a Volunteer Day as a whole of community event.

Communities that receive a Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration Grant are required to hold their event or display on Monday 5 December 2016, as part of Western Australia’s Thank a Volunteer Day and the International Day of Volunteers. If this date is not convenient for regional applicants, because of local area issues such as harvest time or bush fire season, communities may hold their celebration any time in the three months following 5 December 2016. Please note, applications for metropolitan events not held on 5 December 2016 will be ineligible for funding.

Applications close at 4:00pm on Thursday, 18 August 2016.

If you require further information about the program or assistance in completing an application form, please do not hesitate to contact the department on 6551 8412.
