The first round of our Community Support Program funding in 2018 saw record numbers of applications submitted from many worthwhile not-for-profit organisations and initiatives across the Hunter region. 

26 successful applicants were announced at the end of April, who were all welcomed at an Afternoon Tea held at NCIG on the 2nd May. Representatives from sporting groups, educational programs, health initiatives and community focused events were all in attendance along with NCIG executives and employees. 

NCIG paid tribute to the work of these wonderful organisations, while the afternoon tea gave an opportunity to the community representatives to get to know one another look for opportunities to work with one another in the future.

“Getting to know each other and the benefit each group brings to the community is such an important part of our Community Support Program” said CEO Aaron Johansen

Mr Johansen recognised the time and effort that our recipient’s contribute to their charity or community group while highlighting the importance of bringing them all together to create a wider support network for them to lean on.

David Jones from the Cove Men’s Shed said that funding like this is vital for most groups within the community and that the benefits go far beyond themselves and flows onto others in the local area. 

“The support that NCIG provides to causes such as ours is invaluable and we would not be able to provide the assistance that we do without the Community Support Program” said Mr Jones. 

“We began in 2015, and since then we have been carrying out community and environmental restoration work in the local area and we thank NCIG for providing organisation such as ours the opportunity to continue to do so via their Community Support Program.” 

Since its inception in 2010 the NCIG Community Support Program has assisted close to 250 not-for-profit and community groups.
