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 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.
