Our Community Fund
At Energex, we see ourselves as an important member of our community. We are committed to delivering safe and reliable power to the people of South East Queensland and have the privilege of supporting community initiatives through our Community and Sustainability Fund.
This Fund is all about giving the local community a helping hand. Through our Fund we partner with local, grassroot community organisations and groups to provide financial support and help them deliver projects like wildlife rescues, the revegetation of river banks and school veggie patches, and even healthy lifestyle education programs.
Since its launch in early 2011, our Fund has assisted over 260 community groups including:
- Community and sporting clubs
- Cultural heritage groups
- Gardening and agriculture societies
- Industry associations
- Animal welfare groups
- Service groups
- Volunteer organisations.
Our sustainable practices provide the key to funding these projects. Through the sale of our scrap materials, we have been able to provide over $650,000 worth of financial support to local communities. In this way, we are turning 'Our Trash' into 'The Community's Treasure'.
We are committed to supporting organisations that, like us, work to make their communities a better place to live.
To be eligible for funding, your project needs to:
- Be located in South East Queensland
- Provide direct benefits to the local community, and
- Fall into one or more of the following categories:
