At Westfund, our members are at the centre of everything we do. That’s why we’re so excited to welcome the 50,000th membership to the Westfund community.

As with a new arrival in any family, we want to mark the occasion by doing something special. To say thank you to our members and our community, we’re expanding our July 2020 Community Grants Program round by an additional $50,000.

This funding boost will mean 16 additional grants or defibrillators as well as one major grant of $10,000 — which you get to help us choose. We’re inviting our entire community to vote on the shortlisted candidates. Voting will be live on our website from 31 August.

If you believe your organisation would be a worthy recipient of the $10,000 grant or a grant of up to $2,500, please check the full terms and conditions or get in touch for further information.
