Freemasons Foundation Victoria has awarded $830,631 to 27 charities stretching the length and breadth of Victoria.
FFV faced a very difficult task in assessing the 154 applications received, which Chairman Rodney Lavin said reflected the incredibly challenging fundraising environment that not-for-profits and community groups have experienced after nearly two years of COVID-19, on top of drought, floods and fires across Victoria’s regions.
“As another tumultuous year draws to a close, we are proud to be announcing funding for some incredibly valuable projects that promise to benefit the Victorian community. These grants will support charities to help those in need or empower the youth of Victoria to achieve their dreams.”
“We’re supporting organisations that are delivering vital services to benefit those individuals and cohorts in society that may otherwise fall through the cracks –from people struggling with mental health issues to those experiencing disadvantage that hinders their access to education.”
“Congratulations to the 27 recipients of this year’s Community Grants program. Freemasons Foundation Victoria recognises the dedication and hard work of staff and volunteers involved in these charities, and we’re proud to contribute to a stronger, healthier Victoria by supporting them,” Mr Lavin concluded.
