Sunshine Automotive Community Fund
The Sunshine Automotive Community Fund is giving away $2,000 each month from August to December!
Following the success of the Sunshine Automotive Community Fund rounds from March to June this year, Sunshine Automotive Gold Coast have once again teamed up with Sunshine Kia Southport, Sunshine Ford Southport and myGC to continue the Sunshine Automotive Community Fund.
From August to December 2016, the Sunshine Automotive Community Fund is offering local not-for-profit organisations, sporting clubs and community groups the opportunity to receive a $2,000 no strings attached donation. And, it’s really easy to be considered for the cash! There’s no grant applications or long forms, just one short one where you tell us who you are, who you represent and how you’d spend the $2,000 to benefit your community cause.
Each round will finish with a voting period and at the end of each voting period, the cause with the most votes will be rewarded with a $2,000 cheque from Sunshine Automotive Gold Coast thanks to Sunshine Kia and Sunshine Ford, Southport.
