Strengthening our communities
At Holiday Coast Credit Union we believe that to find the real heart of a community you need to look deep inside.
To that end, we never stop looking at ways to assist the organisations that selflessly put the health and well-being of our community first.
That is what our Community Partnership Program is all about - It’s a means of actively and effectively providing financial and volunteering aid to Not-for-Profit community groups within our regions.
We are very pleased and very proud, to announce that our total 2016 giving back to our communities programs will exceed $180,000 with the $65,400 granted as part of our 2016 Annual Community Partnership Grants presentations in June 2016 together with more than $114,000 provided throughout 2015-2016 in support of many community groups and community events that Holiday Coast Credit Union has supported including our annual major support of $30,000 to Life Education Mid North Coast.
Between 2005 and 2016 our Community Partnership Program has provided financial support of more than $1,620,000 plus goods-in-kind and volunteer support, to more than 440 local community groups making possible 365 projects to be completed in our region.
The next round of Community Partnership Grant Applications will be invited in February 2017.
Following the 2016 application process, an additional $65,400.00 has now been distributed to enable a further 29 organisations develop and administer new programs in our communities.
In addition to our Community Partnership Program, through our “Good Corporate Citizen Program” our staff have volunteered many hours in hands-on aid, education programs and fundraising in support of local and national fundraising and awareness events including Relay for Life, Australian Rotary Health Hat Day, Jeans for Genes Day, Footy Colours Day and National Bandanna Day to name a few.
Whilst applications for the 2016 Community Partnership Grants Program have closed, we continue to seek opportunities for our staff to assist local organisations through our volunteering program which provides staff with two additional days paid leave to allow them to work with local community groups.
