Small grants for flood-impacted communities - Successful grant recipients announced (round 1)

Over $210,000 has been raised via The Flood Appeal activated by the Australian Mutuals Foundation (AMF) and further funds are expected as the appeal continues. Many thanks to the donors comprising of many organisations from the mutual sector, individual community members, and also co-operatives around Australia.


In partnership with the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM), G&C Mutual Bank and Summerland Credit Union, the AMF has started distributing the funds as small grants to local not for profits, charities and community groups in affected regions, to help recover from the devastating impact of the floods.
