About Us

What does Geelong Connected Communities Do?

Financial contributions from an ever-growing group of local businesses and organisations allow Geelong Connected Communities to coordinate and administer a 24/7 grants program supporting organisations throughout the Geelong region with resources to deliver better services, support and experiences for the people of Geelong.
What type of projects can be funded?

Projects must fall into one of eleven funding categories:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Environment
  • Sport
  • Arts and Culture
  • Community Sponsorships
  • Community Projects
  • Youth
  • Disability
  • Events
  • Community Safety
  • Sport in the North


How is the money distributed?

Any not-for-profit organisation in Geelong can apply for a grant to support a specific project or program. Our board of directors are local, community-minded individuals who objectively review applications in consultation and decide on appropriate funding allocations.
