Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell, is thrilled that Round 94 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) has brought another $215,791.90 in grants to the Glass House electorate. Mr Powell said the fund provides one-off grants to Queensland not-for-profit community organisations, with revenue sourced from gaming taxes and distributes approximately $53 million per year to Queensland communities.
“The Gambling Community Benefit Fund provides grants to community organisations who often struggle to raise enough funds to maintain or upgrade their premises through traditional fundraising. The grants also enable them to provide further resources or expand their services to the community,” Mr Powell said.
Mr Powell said the lucky recipients from Glass House this time were:
• Eudlo Horse and Pony Club Inc – $18000
• Glasshouse Country Community Group – $1,945
• Glasshouse Districts Cricket Club Inc – $34,200
• Maleny District Guides Queensland – $35,000
• Maleny Arts and Crafts Group Inc – $19,947
• Maleny District Sport and Recreation Club Inc – 34,999.90
• Montville State School Parents and Citizens Association – $20,000
• Montville Village Association Inc – $18,200
• Woodford Lions Club Inc – $33,500
“I would like to congratulate each of these groups on their success in this round and I encourage organisations within Glass House to apply for funding in the next round which closes on 28 February 2018,” Mr Powell concluded.
