The Community Participation and Appeals Fund was established in July 2015 to support significant community events, as well as charitable appeals.
The Fund aims to encourage participation in community and cultural events, and to facilitate the Tasmanian Government’s contribution to raising funds for worthy community appeals.
The Fund is a closed grants program with recipient organisations identified by the Tasmanian Government. Four events and four community appeals currently benefit from the Fund:
|The Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal||$30 000|
|Heart Foundation Doorknock Appeal||$50 000|
|Colony47 Xmas lunch||$3 000|
|Red Cross Calling campaign||$7 000|
|Festa Italia Festival||$8 500|
|Estia Greek Festival||$13 000|
|Chinese Lunar New Year Festival||$4 000|
|Hobart Regatta Day Festival||$14 000*|
* being provided in two instalments of $28 000 in 2015-16 and 2016-17.
Prior to the Fund’s establishment, these events and appeals have had to seek funding on an annual basis. The intent of the Fund is to provide these important events and appeals with funding certainty, by allowing them to enter into multi-year funding agreements for the period 2015-16 to 2018-19. This will allow each organisation to better plan for the future, and continue to stage events that have become an important part of Tasmanian community life and contribute to community pride and participation.
In the 2017-18 State Budget the Government announced an additional $50,000 per annum for 2017-18 and 2018-19 to support a wider range of events and appeals.
