Local community groups play such a pivotal role in supporting Australian communities, so to celebrate the generous and caring work of these groups, ISPT has announced its Community Kickstart grant program is back in 2023.
ISPT’s Kickstart program provides financial funding and support to enable Australian community groups to continue their great work throughout their local areas.
The program is open to all registered local groups and voluntary organisations that provide and promote social, cultural and environmental benefit to the community and will roll out across 15 regional and metropolitan communities across Australia.
The grants range from $5,000 to $10,000 to help local organisations continue their work in creating positive change to the lives of those in their community.
ISPT National Portfolio Manager – Retail Services, Rosemary Condron-Calic, said: “The Community Kickstart grant program is a contribution that allows ISPT to give back to those organisations who have provided much-needed support to our local communities assisting them to continue to develop and deliver programs. As a business, we have a strong ethos around caring for others, embracing our responsibility to build a better future and strengthen our intrinsic connections with our customers and local communities.”
