Council’s Annual Donation Program now open

Tamworth Regional Council’s Annual Donation Program 2022-2023 is now open for applications. The program is designed to help small to medium organisations and community groups, who do significant work in the community, with funding to help their operations.


There is $61,000 available for the Tamworth region, including the villages of Nundle, Manilla and Barraba.


Councillor Helen Tickle said it is a great program that assists with the operations of essential community groups.


“Donation programs like these are so important in regional communities and it is a great opportunity for organisations that directly benefit the community to receive some assistance. The donation can be used for a variety of projects such as funding local activities, purchasing specific office equipment or supplies, hiring transport services, purchasing resources for use in community, training fees and many other opportunities.”


Cr Tickle added “In 2021-2022 the program provided much needed funds across the region to a range of organisations. Among the successful applications last year donations were made to over 16 organisations, including $7,000 to the 2022 Barraba Show, $500 was used by Co Care Inc for ongoing projects to assist the elderly and disabled in the community, $3,598 was used by the Tamworth and District Riding for the Disabled to purchase suitable saddles for two, $669 was used by Tamworth Mountain Bikers Inc. to improve their walking tracks by purchasing herbicides for weed control, as well as many other great projects.”


Applications are invited from not-for-profit organisations, charities, community groups and organisations located within the Tamworth Regional Council local government area, that provides a service to the Tamworth regional community which may be of a unique nature. Recipients of donations funding in previous years are welcome to reapply. Organisations are eligible for only one donation per financial year, that is 1 July to 30 June.


Successful applicants will be determined by a panel of three Councillors, Cr Helen Tickle, Cr Brooke Southwell and Cr Judy Coates.
