The Community Grants Program reflects Horizon Bank’s commitment to our wonderful South Coast communities. Horizon Bank is proud to support projects, programs and events that align with our values, and are making a significant contribution to the community and the lives of others.

Grants are available of up to a maximum amount of $5,000 (including GST) per application. Projects must provide enduring value to the community and have key project deliverables. Each submission will be reviewed based on the organisation’s community involvement, impact and achievements.

The following groups are eligible to apply:
