Round 2 of the Community Investment fund is now CLOSED
The Community Investment Fund (CIF) is now closed for applications in Round 2 (2017) of funding. The application form can be found here and the guidelines for funding here. Applications for funding will open for Round 3 (2017) in July.
The CIF is dedicated to the Marulan and surrounding communities. The CIF is a $50,000 in cash and in-kind contribution Holcim Australia has dedicated as a contribution to community focused projects each year.
From small things, big things can grow. Through the CIF, Holcim is contributing toward the vitality, sustainability and prosperity of the local community. In December 2014 we launched our Community Investment Fund and called for applications across the following key themes:
- Education for society’s future
- Sustainable community development
- Building infrastructure for liveable communities
