Hunter charities and not-for-profit organisations seeking funding for local projects are encouraged to apply for grants from Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation before Monday, October 16.

The charitable foundation’s focus is to support community projects which address disadvantage in the community in the areas of health, social wellbeing and young people.

““We invite all charity organisations in the Hunter seeking support for projects that address important community issues to apply for a grant from the Foundation which is one of the largest in regional NSW,” Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation executive officer, Graham Batten said.

The foundation has donated more than $16.7 million to 400 projects and endeavours across the Hunter since 2003.
