Applications open for Tindall Rural Community Event Fund

Tuesday 12 October 02:00 pm

The 2021 Tindall Rural Community Event Fund is now open. This fund is available annually, with applications open in October and closing mid November, for rural community led events. 

The development of this fund was inspired by numerous requests for assistance for community-led events such as family fun days, community celebrations and summer picnics along with events that have arisen in response to specific issues, e.g. a community who had experienced a number of tragic events decided to run a Family Fun Day to encourage their community to focus on the ‘good and positive’ about themselves.

Accessible and collaborative community events are an essential part of developing a sense of belonging and community. They encourage neighbourly relationships and establishing links that build and strengthen communities and families overall.

This Rural Community Event Fund has been developed to allow us the flexibility to provide financial support within a short time-frame.

Please note that for eligibility organisations must meet the goals and priority areas of the Tindall Foundation Families Funding area. Exclusions include organisations whose primary purpose is education or health focused, research, the arts, sports, leisure and recreation, buildings or land, overseas organisations and animal charities.
