$30,000 awarded to community groups and schools

A new batch of schools and charitable organisations have been named as recipients of the 2022 MainPower Community Fund.

Since 2015, the Fund has distributed more than $190,000 to more than 170 groups and schools in the MainPower network.

Twice a year MainPower gives away a share of $30,000 to community groups and schools. $10,000 is split between successful school applications and $20,000 between community groups.

Consumers on the MainPower Network can apply for a share of the funding. Applications are then shortlisted, and the winners are decided by an online community vote.

The next funding found will open from mid- April until October.

More information on the MainPower Community Fund is available here.
