2018 Major Grants - Presentation Night

Held on Thursday, 13th September, 2018 

Learning about so many wonderful local projects was the highlight of our 2018 Major Grants Presentation Night. 

The evening saw the twelve successful local community groups come together to meet and greet and to receive their

2018 Major Grant Certificates. Each group spoke briefly about their project plans, along with their group's hopes and future aspirations. It is always an inspiring event where we learn about each of the projects and gain a much greater understanding of what our local communities are achieving and how they are giving back to our community.

We sincerely 'Congratulate', and thank the many community groups who applied for our 2018 Major Grants. We had almost 40 applications with a total value of over $550,000. It is very difficult to be able to select only a few projects to support when there are so many wonderful projects on the go in Greater Shepparton. Best wishes to you all and please don't be disheartened and do apply again next year. 

We look forward to keeping you up to date with all projects as they progress!
