Into Our Hands and Awakened Allies are thrilled to present a new volunteering initiative.
We are excited to invite local volunteer and not-for-profit community groups to an in-person, interactive workshop session so that we come together and understand what modern volunteering looks like for our community.
This session will inform and assist in designing a purpose-built localised program that will support volunteers, community groups and service clubs with their ongoing resilience and capacity so that we can keep volunteering active and thriving in our community.
WORKSHOP DATE: FRIDAY 26 AUGUST
Garry Nash & Co Gives Generously
The Garry Nash & Co. Community Fund has recently awarded multiple grants across Wangaratta to deserving community organisations and non-profits.
Eleven local organisations are set to benefit in over $14,000 worth of funding from Garry Nash & Co. Community Fund this autumn following a recent grant round supporting local charitable projects and community organisations.
The funding will support projects including children’s cultural activities for Indigenous children in out of home care, a driving lesson program for culturally and linguistically diverse women, and new fire-fighting equipment for the Everton CFA volunteers – just to name some of the successful grant recipients.
The grants were made possible thanks to generous donations from Garry Nash & Co. Real Estate directors, clients and staff who are working to build their community fund to support important causes across Wangaratta for the long term.
GIVE Wangaratta Signature Event Pitch Up raises $100K
Big Brothers, Big Sisters, NE Tracks LLEN, NESAY benefit from GIVE Wangaratta Pitch Up Event
THREE Wangaratta and North East community organisations have received a share in more than 100,000 as part of the latest GIVE Wangaratta Pitch Up fundraising event.
Organisations Big Brothers Big Sisters Wangaratta received $47,200, NE Tracks LLEN received $25,600 and NESAY $27,500, much to the delight of the recipients and the audience. Held at the Wangaratta Performing Arts and Convention Centre (WPACC), generous locals dug deep to make the programs a reality and enhance and enrich the lives of young people in the North East region. Into Our Hands Foundation chair Ruth Kneebone said ticket sales had been strong since they went on sale.
“There were 115 attendees, which was marvellous, and each came with a positive and generous mindset,” Ruth said. “As the night evolved, personal stories mixed with good humour and wit gathered momentum and drove the giving to totals beyond our expectations. “We were absolutely thrilled for the three pitching charities that will now progress confidently to deliver their projects.
