Thank you to everyone that sent through an application for an Ashbury Community Fund. Dennis Family Corporation, the developers of Ashbury understands that it takes more than bricks and mortar to build a community and as such introduced the annual initiative, Dennis Family Corporation Chief Executive Officer, Peter Levinge, couldn't be happier.
“Our Founding Chairman, Bert Dennis, has always felt it was really important to support the areas where we operate our business. He introduced the annual Community Fund concept as practical way of ensuring that any money we provide goes directly into the hands of local groups whose applications for grants are approved,” he explains.
“Every year we allocate funding to assist a wide range of special activities and community programs, helping people of all ages. Over the years, we’ve provided grants of $500 or $1,000 to literally hundreds of different organisations to help make their projects possible.”
Applications for this years fund have now closed and our panel of independent judges will assess each application, all recipients will be contacted in early November with the lucky recipients invited to a presentation night in mid-November.
Again, thank you to everyone that took the time to apply.
