2020 CLUB GRANTS
This year, the decision was made not to conduct the ClubGRANTS 2020 Awards Night, due to COVID-19.
In order to recognise the worthy recipients, OESC will instead, visit the community groups to personally hand out the grants.
Representatives from the Board of Directors, ClubGRANTS Committee and OESC staff will be present at each of the nominated times, commencing September, to engage with and congratulate the recipients.
There will be a number of methods used to communicate with the Members and general public to raise the awareness of the Awards, and these include, News Crews on-site, Orange City Life, The Orange App, Facebook Live, Facebook, Instagram, Radio, OESC Website, internal signage and boards, and through distributed Press Releases.
Category 1 Grant Applications from clubs are now open to community groups from the following sectors:
Community welfare and social services
