Chevron Grants Now Open for Pilbara Community Projects
PERTH, Western Australia, 27 May 2010 – Grants of up to $5,000 are now available for community projects that will benefit the Pilbara through the 2010 Chevron Community Spirit Grants program.
The Community Spirit Grants program provides vital funding to the communities closest to Chevron Australia’s offshore operations including Karratha, Dampier, Onslow and Exmouth.
Since 2006, Pilbara towns have received almost $400,000 in funding through the program. The grants support those elements that are the essence of a thriving local community: families and children, sport, volunteers and the environment. The program is aimed at encouraging small grass-roots projects and ideas that would gain some momentum from a grant of this size.
Not-for-profit organisations; community groups; Aboriginal Corporations; and government agencies are encouraged to apply and applications are due by 30 June 2010.
More information on the program including grant guidelines and application forms are available at www.chevronaustralia.com
