$2 million granted to Geelong

In 2015 Give Where You Live will distribute $2.06 million to the Geelong region (defined as the local government areas of the City of Greater Geelong,  Surf Coast Shire,Borough of Queenscliffe, the southern portion of Golden Plains Shire and most recently parts of the Colac Otway Shire).

As part of the Give Where You Live ongoing commitment to transparency, accountability and community involvement, Give Where You Live engaged 100 volunteer community members as well as staff and board in our 2015 Grant Review Panel process. These grant reviewers represented the diversity of the Geelong community including young people,  seniors, business people, educators, community service providers,  government employees and engaged community volunteers.

The recommendations of the Grant Review Panels were collated and reviewed by staff with a final list of recommendations presented to the Give Where You Live Board of Directors.
