We were delighted to recently be presented with a $10,000 grant from the CommBank Foundation Centenary Grant program.
The grant will go towards our Team Ability program, an after-school sports program that is increasing inclusion for teenagers with disability in Swan Hill. We’re very excited about the impact this will have on the program, especially with the purchase of new sports equipment.
“This money will go such a long way and be appreciated by all of the guys that come along to our program. Team Ability is more than just skills development. Sports are a fundamental part of regional life and this program really makes people feel like they belong which is super important’ says Billy Carpinteri, Client Engagement Coordinator, Loddon Mallee.
Athena Giantsidis, Carnegie Branch Manager, with the Commonwealth Bank said the following, “Our branch Carnegie selected The Tipping Foundation to apply for a centenary grant in recognition of the wonderful support they provide to people with disabilities, especially young people. The Tipping Foundation is able to provide these young people with the opportunities they are entitled to such as protection, support, education and after-school activities.
“This year celebrates 100 years of Commonwealth Bank employees donating to local community groups, charities and disadvantaged schools. What started care packages for troops fighting on the frontline in 1917 has now grown to over 13,700 people donating regularly to provide grants to support the wellbeing of the Australian community.”
We’d like to thank the Commonwealth Bank for their support of this inclusive program!
