Community organisations often need a boost in funds to keep powering ahead and sometimes the money is given from within the community from support programs.

The Greenbank Services Club Community Benefit Foundation is one such scheme that helps take care of those smaller groups that often get overlooked.

The foundation aims to support organisations that help improve community welfare and make the local communities a better place to live, work and play. They also aim to target charity organisations with limited resources or financial support.

An amount over $80,000 is available from the Greenbank Services Club Community Benefit Foundation annually with individual grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.

Tammy Robinson from Formally Ever After who received a $2,500 donation said thank you to Greenbank Services Club from not only everyone at FEA, but from everyone they help.

“What you do year after year for community is massive,” said Tammy.

“The phenomenal amount of funds you give to support our communities is incredible.

“I’m so thankful that the Greenbank Services Club Community Benefit Foundation could see all we are and could see why we are deserving of their support.”

Another group that received a grant was the Forestdale Neighbourhood Watch Inc. who have been bringing a sense of community and safety since 1997.

“A huge thank you to the Greenbank Services Club and Leeanne Enoch MP for awarding us $2,500 from the community benefit foundation,” a Facebook post said.
