The Star Community Grants

Skip to main content

The support of local community groups and charities plays an important role in building positive relationships between The Star and the places we call home.

The Star Community Grants Program provides support to projects and initiatives that have a positive and lasting impact on our city.  It provides a mechanism to fund capital projects, events and activities through a consistent, fair and transparent process to ensure a range of community groups, charities and not-for-profit organisations are supported.

The Community Grants Program will be funded through The Star’s Found Monies (standing charity donation boxes, “wishing well” fountains, or the proceeds of lost property sales) to guarantee that this money collected goes back into the community where it is most needed.

Eligibility Criteria

Treasury Brisbane will consider funding capital projects, events or activities that meet these requirements:

  • Individuals planning an activity, event or undertaking a capital project for the benefit of the community (within the Brisbane City Council local government area); or

  • Workplaces or businesses that are planning an activity, event or undertaking a capital project that supports the local community (within the Brisbane City Council local government area); and

FAQs

What postcode should I list in the application form if my project is based in an area that is different to our organisation’s location?

The postcode you should enter should be the location of the target groups for your project that you are seeking to have funding for, not your organisation's office address.
