In May 2018, Stringer Clark launched its Community Fund. The Fund provides financial grants to selected community and sporting groups across Victoria’s south-west.
Local footballers and netballers, along with Year 12 legal students were among the first to benefit from Stringer Clark’s inaugural Community Fund. The initial groups to receive 2018 funding included:
- South Warrnambool Football Netball Club
- Emmanuel College, Warrnambool - Sponsorship of Year 12 Legal Studies Award
- Portland Football Netball and Cricket Club
The 2019 recipients were again South Warrnambool Football Netball Club and Portland Football Netball and Cricket Club.
The purpose of the Stringer Clark Community Fund is to offer financial support to local cultural and sporting organisations. This may include schools, athletics clubs, 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.
