Purple Bench Micro Grants


7 June 2024 OR as soon as 16 valid applications are received


16 micro grants of $300+GST to assist members to sponsor a Purple Bench at their Centre.

In the 2023 – 2024 financial year, Linkwest is once again offering purple bench micro grants. We are delighted to offer grants of $300+GST and the grant money is possible thanks to the generosity of:

  • Loftus Community Centre (Loftus was a member of Linkwest for 40 years and sadly closed leaving the remaining money to Linkwest for this grant program)
  • EEO Equal Opportunity Specialists
  • Linkwest

Linkwest member Centres can use these micro grants to assist with the cost of materials to transform an existing bench, or to subsidise the cost of purchasing a new bench. Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Only current CRC Package and Neighbourhood Centre members of Linkwest who have not previously been awarded a Purple Bench Micro Grant are eligible to apply.*


* If you have already received a grant but you have reason to replace – or repair – a previously installed bench (i.e. safety reasons), please contact Linkwest. You may be eligible to apply for another grant to help with the replacement/repair costs. 

DGR status required?
