community stories

Behind every grant is a story and we’d love to hear about and share the great work you are doing with our funding. Check out our community stories page. 

If you would like us to tell your organisation’s story and the great work you are doing for and on behalf of your community contact our Communications & Marketing Coordinator.


Illustrate your story by providing a great photo, photos or video about your project or event.  For reproduction we require high resolution photos which are at least 1.5MBs or 300dpi in size.  For example if you are taking a photo on your phone, please send it through in actual size to ensure we get a high resolution copy.

A posed photo of people looking at the camera doesn’t convey your project’s good work and are less likely to attract media attention.  If you are doing any transformative work, such as creating a community garden, teaching kids fun new skills, film or photograph the progress and the change you’ve made.

You must get consent for photos depicting any person under the age of 18 or vulnerable adults.  Make it clear where the photographs or film will be used. You can download a consent form from our website here. Ensure the form is signed and dated.
