The OneFortyOne Community Grants Program
We believe in regional communities and are committed to supporting the sustainable prosperity of the places where we live and work.
Communities are flexible, and so is our grant program. If your community group is from an area where we operate, you can approach us directly for grants of up to $5,000 via the online application portal. We accept applications all year round and review applications as they are received.
In Australia we operate in the Green Triangle region, an area that spans across South East South Australia and Western Victoria. In New Zealand we work in the Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough regions, located at the top of the South Island.
