At NuGrow, we believe our local communities are the backbone of healthy lives. That’s why our purpose is healthier environments, supporting healthier communities, globally. We welcome opportunities to contribute to the communities in which we live and work, always seeking to make a practical difference and add real value and support where it counts.
If you are a community group, charity, social enterprise or other cause-based organisation, and are looking for corporate support – whether financial or in-kind – NuGrow’s community sponsorship and donation program may be the right fit for you. There are three areas to consider in relation to eligibility.
1 Your local government area
NuGrow focuses support on the organisations that work within the local communicates near our operations. These include:
- Brisbane City Council
- Ipswich City Council
- Rockhampton Regional Council
- Maranoa Regional Council
- Western Downs Regional Council.
2 Your objectives
While there are numerous important ways that community groups, charities, social enterprises and other cause-based organisations empower our communities, there are four areas we prioritise:
- Diverting more waste from landfill
- Creating better resources through recycling
- Improving soil and waterway quality
- Showcasing innovation via a circular economy
If your objectives align with these, then we could be the right fit.
3 Your timeframe
If you are seeking funds or in-kind support sooner than four weeks from the date of application, we are unlikely to be in a position to provide that support. Opportunities with at least four weeks’ lead time are preferred.
Financial support is generally under $5,000 and in-kind support generally relates to the provision of compost, soil or potting mix.
