The 2016 round of ANZ Seeds of Renewal Program is due to close on Friday 26th August 2016.
The program focuses specifically on supporting education and employment initiatives that support local economies in rural, regional and remote areas, with consideration given to projects that benefit communities with a population of fewer than 15,000 people.
Through the Seeds of Renewal program, ANZ commits at least $250,000 which is distributed through grants of up to $15,000 to community organisations for projects focused on these areas.
This year Lenovo is again supporting the program, with donations of laptops and tablets to eligible community projects. This means community groups can apply for a funding grant or for IT equipment.
Examples of projects that could receive a grant include:
- Providing certified training courses at local community centres
- Supporting programs that help people to prepare for employment or return to education
- Supporting programs which help people to learn new skills and knowledge
- Developing micro-business or social enterprises which help to create employment
