Synergy Collie Small Grants Program powers community for a brighter future

Collie grants

The Synergy Collie Small Grants Program is empowering the local community with about $40,000 in grants awarded to nine not-for-profit groups at the Collie Ridge Resort last night (May 23).

The program offers grants of up to $5000 to community organisations and charities making a difference in the Collie region.

More than $200,000 has been distributed to worthy causes since the Synergy Collie Grants Program was launched six years ago.

Executive General Manager Thermal Generation, Angie Young, said Synergy is partnering with the Collie community to provide support where it is needed most.

“The aim of the grants program is to provide a much-needed boost to grass-roots organisations that deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the community,” Ms Young said.

The 2024 Collie Small Grants Program recipients are:

Collie Retired Mineworkers Association – to refurbish the Stockton Arch.
Collie Men’s Shed – for the facility expansion project, which includes a wood storage shed and a lean-to.
Collie Racing Drivers Association – for a safety upgrade to the track fence at Collie Speedway.

Ms Young said Synergy has been part of the Collie community for more than 50 years.

“The Synergy Collie Small Grants Program is one of the many ways Synergy plays an active role in the communities it operates in,” Ms Young said.
