Community grant of up to $1,000

In the spirit of hope let’s come together to bring some festive cheer to our community and wrap up what has been an extraordinary year through our festive grant program.

This year our Festive Fund is designed to encourage the Nillumbik community to celebrate the festive season a little differently. Organisations are encouraged to apply for funding to deliver a project, program or activity over the festive season that can be showcased within the Nillumbik Festive Calendar. All projects must align to at least one of the following themes:

  • Community goodwill
  • Spirit of hope
  • Supporting Shop Local
  • Celebrating together in a different way

Types of activities that will be funded include:

  • Performances (music, choir, theatrical)
  • Demonstrations (how to videos, artistic festive displays)
  • Seminars/podcasts (topic based conversations aligning to at least one of the themes)
  • Virtual celebration events    
  • Goodwill programs that support local community captured on film
  • Local history or stories aligning to at least one of the themes
  • Local virtual walks showcasing festive spirit

The options are endless and we encourage you to get creative, give hope and spread kindness to others in your community.
