About the Community Investment Fund

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
