Strawberry Fields opens community grant applications

Strawberry Fields

If you’re looking for a bit of help to get a project over the line, you might be in luck. Strawberry Fields music festival has opened applications for its annual community grants round, ahead of its 2019 event from Friday November 29 to Sunday December 1.

The grant program has been running since 2015 and is designed to give back to the Tocumwal community that hosts the festival each year. Funds from the grant pool are sourced from a portion of every Strawberry Fields ticket sold.

Grants are awarded depending on the number of Berrigan Shire residents who will benefit from the initiative, the level of community support and the overall quality of the application. Previous winners of the grants include Tocumwal Public School and the Biralee Pre School. If you have a project that could use a bit of extra dough, make sure to get your application in quick.

Strawberry Fields 2019 Community Grants Program is open for applications until Monday July 1. For more info, head to the festival website.
