The Shire of Mount Magnet has an agreement with Mt Magnet Gold Pty Ltd that the Company will make a series of community benefit payments to the Shire over a three year period. The Shire will establish a fund known as the Ramelius Resources Community Benefit Fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide funding for worthwhile community programs and/or community infrastructure on application from bona fide Mount Magnet community groups.
These grants are available to local members of the Mount Magnet community who need money to assist with projects that will benefit the community. Projects should provide long term benefits to the community and involve local participation (volunteers). Projects may be jointly funded (that is money may come from other organisations, grants or fundraising).
Some of the successful applications have been:
- Events during Seniors Week
- Football equipment and uniforms
- St John’s Ambulance
- Volunteer Fire Brigade
Please ensure that after your event or project has been completed (and within three months) you are required to provide evidence to the Shire of Mount Magnet demonstrating that the funds were used within the conditions of the contract and to acquit the funding that was provided by completing an Acquittal Form.
