Dear Division 9 Community and Sporting Organisations
The Division 9 Divisional Donation Program for 2014/15 is open for applications from Monday 4 August and closes Friday 5 September 2013. The application form is attached.
This program focusses on encouraging local community groups to commit to being involved in our community initiatives and leverage them for better promotional awareness of your work in our area. The intent is to not only offer a "hand out" but a "hand up", assisting your group to promote themselves as engaged community participants.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to tell you about our community postcard that is available to you for fundraising. We've printed a series of postcards with a variety of images promoting our region, and example of which is included with this letter. These can be sold for $1 or $2 as a fundraising initiative. I'm encouraging local community groups to help market our area and raise money for their projects this year through sending this postcard to interstate or overseas contacts that your members might be connected to through exchange programs, sporting tour groups, or cultural initiatives.
For further information on these postcards please email
Don't forget, when you are applying for your donation, to include a one page plan on how your community group will use the money and how the project will show that Division 9 has true community spirit.
Thanks for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Councillor Glenn Tozer
