The Buderim Foundation is set to host its biggest ever Community Grants Celebration next month, with a record amount of funding expected to be awarded to local community groups. 

On Saturday,15th September, the popular philanthropy group will announce this year’s grant winners, the recipients of which are all community-based organisations providing services and support for residents in the 4556 postcode.

This year, the Buderim Foundation will award more than $75,000 to be shared by 23 community-based organisations which provide services and support for residents in the 4556 postcode.

Buderim Foundation Grant Committee Chair Lisa Edward said the event is the most important day on the Foundation’s calendar and continues to grow each year.

“In 2017, the Buderim Foundation celebrated the 10th anniversary of the grant program, presenting 17 grants totalling more than $65,000,” Ms Edward said.

“This year, we’ll far exceed that figure.

“Buderim is such a beautiful community to live in; everybody is so friendly and engaging.

“Weekends are often full of lively community events to attend for everyone, young and old, whether it’s our local school parent and community association, men’s shed, chess club, church groups, sports club, arts and craft groups, garden clubs, and care services – all making a positive difference in our community.

Starting at 2pm in front of the amphitheatre at the Buderim Village Park, the Community Grants Celebration is a family-friendly afternoon featuring complimentary refreshments and the chance to learn more about the Buderim Foundation; its fundraising activities and the perpetual fund from which the grants are created.

Grants Chair Lisa Edward said everyone was welcome to participate in the event, which will feature a free sausage sizzle along with free cupcakes.

“On behalf of the Buderim Foundation, I welcome you all to celebrate the 23 community organisations that were successful in securing funds through our Buderim community foundation and join us to celebrate our exceptional Buderim community,” she said.
