Towong Community Bushfire Relief Fund

The Towong Community Bushfire Disaster Relief Fund has been established in response to the 2019/2020 bushfires which devastated our region.

Along with the Community Enterprise Foundation (covering the Alpine LGA) and the East Gippsland Community Foundation (covering East Gippsland), Border Trust is partnering with the Victorian Bushfire Appeal funds into Towong Shire.

As trustee of the Towong Community Bushfire Disaster Relief Fund, Border Trust will distribute $2,850,945 through grant programs to support long term recovery initiatives.

We thank the Victorian Bushfire Appeal and the generosity of public donors for enabling this place-based distribution and look forward to investing in significant community identified priorities.

Grant Program  – Round 2 Now Open!

Border Trust invites grant submissions from not-for-profit, community organisations for projects seeking to support the communities within the Towong Shire affected by the 2019/2020 Bushfires.

Our grant limit will again be $50,000, but if there are particular projects requiring more than that, we will consider grants to $100,000, subject to prior discussion and agreement to accept those applications.

Our objective with this round is to encourage projects that focus on relief, recovery, preparedness and reconstruction relating to the 2019/20 bushfires. Please check the guidelines and application form on our website for more details.
