Ports corp gives away $50k to celebrate centenary
GLADSTONE Ports Corporation is giving away $50,000 to celebrate its centenary.
Not-for-profit, locally incorporated organisations in Gladstone, Bundaberg and Rockhampton have the chance to take home donations of $10,000 each as part of the corporation's Centenary Donation Program.
Donations will be awarded to three beneficiaries in the Gladstone region and one beneficiary in each of the Bundaberg and Rockhampton regions.
The donation program was designed by GPC in its 100th year of operations to recognise the contributions of its customers to the sustainable growth of its business and its ongoing social investment.
GPC chief Craig Doyle said it was through strong support and continued commitment from its customers that the GPC had experienced unprecedented growth over its 100 years, having developed into Australia's fourth largest port and Queensland's premier multi-cargo port.
"The focus of the donations will be on making it truly local by distributing the funds locally to organisations and groups that provide direct assistance to members of our community," he said.
The GPC will include customer representatives on the Centenary Donation Program panel who will assess and determine the donation program beneficiaries.
Representatives will be nominated by GPC based on the magnitude and longevity of their relationship with the corporation, and representation across the organisational business portfolio.
