What are we trying to do?
The Carlton Connected Communities Committee involves
a group of Carlton locals working with Carlton branch
of the Bendigo Bank to establish and manage a fund that
will direct profits into community projects in the Carlton
The community fund will support projects and activities
driven by Carlton community members and organisations.
Revenue for the fund will be generated through the support
of the Bendigo Bank Carlton branch www.bendigobank.com.au
The committee is working to:
> Establish a strong committee, representing a range
of groups in Carlton: Do you want to be involved?
> Seek pledges from the Carlton community for new
and existing banking business at the Bendigo Bank Carlton
branch: Do you want to talk about your banking?
> And develop the criteria/categories for funding
from the Community Fund: Do you want to shape the way
the fund best responds to community needs?
Who we are?
The committee includes a number of local Carlton residents,
agencies and organisations, and were looking for
new members. We meet on a monthly basis for just
1 hour a month, your input can make a difference.
Why are we part of the Carlton Connected Communities
We know that there are always good ideas from local
organisations, sporting clubs and individuals to make
Carlton a better place, and we want to create a way
to fund local projects, with support from the Bendigo
We believe that a strong committee that represents
the Carlton community can ensure that the fund is best
directed to community needs. Key roles of the committee
include establishing the fund and its direction, administration,
promotion and marketing, and new ideas.
Who can benefit?
Once the fund is established, we will be seeking applications
from community projects, community groups and agencies,
not for profits, schools, sporting clubs, Individuals,
and others with interest in the Carlton community.
The committee will establish the fund criteria and
grants funding will be promoted through the community.
