Community Grant Review Panel

Are you looking for a way to give back to the community you live in?

For close to 70 years the Give Where You Live Foundation has created positive social change across our region through our grants program.

As part of our commitment to building a fairer community in the Geelong region, we have community members participate in the review of applications to our grant rounds through our Community Grant Review Panel.


What is the Community Grant Review Panel?

The Community Grant Review Panel consists of volunteers from the community who read and review 3-4 grant applications, before attending a panel discussion session with other reviewers. The community review forms part of our decision-making when allocating funding to applications.

We estimate the time commitment required to be around 4-5 hours across 3-4 weeks, including attendance at an orientation session and panel discussion session.
