SCCU increase the level of financial support to provide $50,000 in Community Grants

Southern Cross Credit Union announces more funding than ever before for their Community Grants program, with a total of $50,000 to be shared across applications from families, individuals, business and community groups.

Community Grants is SCCU’s largest annual community program, generating enormous interest across the Northern Rivers. Living true to their ethos as a Credit Union and giving back to the community when they need it the most, SCCU have increased the amount to a record total, to be shared across successful applicants.

The program this year will focus on the future, with categories focused on preserving the future of the region, taking back momentum and supporting ideas that have the power to spark change.

SCCU CEO Stuart Edwards shared “It’s been a challenging year for many of us and while things continue to shift, we want to help even more and support our community when they need it the most. Tripling our contribution this year continues our resolve to invest in the place we call home and reflects who we are as a business, where we’re going and why we’re different for all the right reasons.”

Past recipients have used their SCCU Grants to make a huge impact on the Northern Rivers, with projects including building tunnels to produce over 60,000 trees per year to be replanted; providing breakfast to between 50-100 primary children every school day for 2 years; starting a program to put homeless women through food safety and barista courses to help them return to the workforce; producing a book to educate children about differences, diversity and disabilities in others; and purchasing new rescue equipment to reach the rising number of people in need.

Applications are now open and close on the 30th September, 2020
