Stringer Clark launch community fund by supporting local community efforts
Local footy clubs, Year 12 legal students, and a local women’s cycling group are among the first to benefit from Stringer Clark’s inaugural launch of its Community Fund.
The Fund will give financial grants to selected community and sporting groups across Victoria’s south- west with donations reaching up to $20K each year.
The initial groups to receive 2018 funding include:
- South Warrnambool Football Netball Club
- Emmanuel College - Warrnambool Sponsorship of Year 12 legal studies Award. The 2017 recipient was Ally Fedley
- Team Ava - JDRF One Ride Camperdown/Cobden district.
We’re excited about the myriad opportunities the Fund offers to local people
At Stringer Clark we are a truly local law firm. We’re staffed by local professionals, we live in our communities and we understand local people and issues.
We embrace the opportunity our Community Fund provides to give back financially, at least in some small way, to the communities that support us.
The purpose of the Stringer Clark Community Fund is to offer financial support to local cultural, educational and sporting organisations. This may include schools, nippers, sports clubs, hospital auxiliaries, not for profit or arts organisations or high-profile community initiatives. The Fund may be limited to one or many organisations for review on an annual basis.
Stringer Clark Community Fund presents a good future funding opportunity for people and groups in Ballarat, Warrnambool, Portland, Horsham, Colac, Ararat, Hamilton and Cobden.
All applications for 2019 close on 9 November 2018 and applications can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Application criteria will be provided by return email. Alternately, visit https://stringerclark.com.au/our-firm-our-community/community-fund
