Santos Organics are inviting local not-for-profits to submit an application for a share of $40,000 in grant funding.

Communications manager Paul Crebar says the funds have been made available thanks to a staff charity fund and Santos matching contributions dollar for dollar.

‘This grant-funding program allows staff and community engagement in recommending the recipient organisations of these funds.’

Santos Organics general manager Michael Lyon says, ‘Being able to partner with our staff to generate these funds is a really positive outcome for our local community organisations. We encourage members of our community to invite their preferred not-for-profit to make an application for these grants.’

n Local not-for-profit organisations can find out more by visiting www.santosorganics.com.au. Applications close February 28.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. What an excellent example of a local business, who have been the “quiet achievers” for over 20 years now driving initiatives such as this to give a leg-up to those that will now be able to see their own projects have the opportunity to make an impact, and as a result a difference.

    I am so thankful to be reminded of the power that comes out of peer to peer assistance and collaboration in local communities – a model that shines particularly brightly when we look out to what is occurring in the greater world at the moment.

    We hear so much rhetoric in the business quarter about adhering to the “triple bottom line” – the 3rd line representing adherence to sustainable practices which feed back to the community. Well, here it is writ large and it’s not just being realised but actioned.

    So much respect Santos Organics and to the staff that have worked with you on this. You’ve literally made my day.
