Charities and not-for-profit organisations seeking funding for projects in Orange are encouraged to apply for grants from the Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation before Monday, May 1.
Charitable Foundation executive officer Graham Batten said the mission is to support projects that help people in need.
During the previous financial year, the foundation donated $1.7 million to community-focused initiatives.
The focus is to support projects that address disadvantage in health, social well being and young people.
“We hold two funding rounds a year to encourage local not-for-profit organisations, which need assistance with worthwhile projects and initiatives to make a grant submission,” Mr Batten said.
