The Department for Communities is currently seeking applications for the Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration Grants Program 2012.
Funding assistance of up to $1,000 will be available to communities throughout Western Australia to hold an event or display on Thank a Volunteer Day/International Day of Volunteers, 5 December 2012. The aim of the Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration Grants Program is to support both metropolitan and regional communities to celebrate Thank a Volunteer Day as a whole of community event.

Communities that receive a Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration Grant are required to hold their event or display on Wednesday, 5 December 2012, as part of Western Australia’s Thank a Volunteer Day and the International Day of Volunteers. If this date is not convenient for regional applicants, because of local area issues such as harvest time or bush fire season, communities may hold their celebration any time in the three months following 5 December 2012. Please note, applications for metropolitan events not held on 5 December 2012 will be ineligible for funding.

More information, including an application form is available on the Department for Communities website

Applications close at 5:00pm on Friday 24 August 2012.
