Meet our 2016 Grant recipients
Westpac Foundation has selected 100 not-for-profit organisations to receive grants valued at up to $10, 000 each, as part of its 2016 round of Community Grants.
These grass-roots organisations have been chosen for their commitment to improving the quality of life for people in need, right across Australia. We estimate around 12, 000 people will benefit from the incredibly important work of these organisations.
We thank these 100 organisations for helping to make our communities stronger.
