Community Groups and charities can now apply for thousands of dollars in community grants offered
by Carolina – a growing master-planned community in Deanside by AVID Property Group.

AVID Victoria Project Director Danny Boubli said grant applications close on February 10 2023, and
the successful applicants would be announced mid- February. He encouraged local community
groups, schools, and charities to apply.

“This is the second year we have offered grants from Carolina through AVID Property Group’s
Sponsorship and Grants Program,” Mr Boubli said.

“Our sponsorship program is a way for us to give back to the community and we encourage any
groups or charities who could do with a helping hand to apply. Our range of available grants, reflect
the importance of lasting community partnerships at a local level and are typically open to newcomers,
as well as those who have applied previously.

To be considered for the 2023 grants, applicants are encouraged to visit the Carolina website and
ensure their group is eligible by reading the terms and conditions and completing the online
application.

The $10,000 in funding is split between successful applicants based on their specific needs, allowing
more groups to benefit from the program.

Last year’s recipients were Caroline Springs Scout Group and the newly established Deanside
Primary School. Each group received $5000.

Deanside Primary School put the $5000 towards equipment for their school gym including paediatric
defibrillators in preparedness for emergencies. Caroline Springs Scout Group used its $5000 to buy
five new, six-person tents.

Other AVID communities in Victoria have also benefitted from the ongoing strategic partnerships
provided by Bloomdale in Diggers Rest, Savana in Wyndham Vale and Hillstowe in Officer.

During the past nine years, AVID’s Sponsorships and Grants Program across Victoria has provided
education on environmental change with Take 3 for the Sea, promoted health and wellness amongst
young people through local sport programs, community events and brought school communities
together.
