Last call for community groups to apply for GPC grants

TIME is running out for community groups wanting to snatch up $50,000 in community grants under a special round of funding.

The Gladstone Ports Corporation is encouraging local groups to act now before applications close on Monday for one of five community donations of $10,000 through its Centenary Donation Program.

The donation program was designed by GPC in recognition of its centenary year, and with the full cooperation of its customers, to assist with the delivery of focussed educational, support, developmental, cultural and environmental initiatives and programs throughout central Queensland.

In its 100th year, GPC will continue its strong history of making a positive contribution to the communities in which it operates by providing a total of $50,000 to not-for-profit, incorporated groups in the Gladstone, Bundaberg and Rockhampton regions.

GPC will include customer representatives on the Centenary Donation Program panel who will assess and determine the donation program beneficiaries.

Interested groups are encouraged to visit http://www.gpcl.com.au and click on the Community section for more information about eligibility criteria and to apply.

Applications for GPC's Centenary Donation Program close at 4pm, on Monday, May 26.
