Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Growing Mould Together

Turtles head for the water.

Stone & Wood’s inGrained Foundation has announced they have $200,000 available to community groups in the Northern Rivers as part of their 2023 grants program. Aimed at not-for-profit charities grants are available for between $5,000 and $30,000.

‘For the past five years, the inGrained Foundation has run a Large Grants program that provides local grassroots charities and organisations in the area with support for their next big project,’ said a spokesperson for the inGrained Foundation.

Grant winners in the past have included Green Heroes from Fingal Head who built a turtle incubator in 2021 that saw almost 300 male loggerhead turtle hatchlings born. The inGrained funding then allowed the Green Heroes to build a proper and permanent incubator.

Other recipients have included Bangalow Koalas, Byron Bay Community Centre, Tweed Landcare, Support for New Mums, Zero Emissions Byron (ZEB), Mullumbimby District and Neighborhood Centre and Autism Camp Australia.

Applications are now open to not-for-profits with DGR status closing on Friday 28 April. inGrained are seeking to support projects in teh areas of conservation of natural resources and habitats,  action on climate change, mental health and wellbeing, accommodation and homelessness, and inclusion and diversity.

‘Applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines and submit before Friday 28 April, by visiting www.ingrainedfoundation.com.au, so if you have friends or family doing incredible things in the Northern Rivers, please let them know.’
