Community Grants Program

As the only local member owned financial institution in CQ, we understand the importance of giving back to the community which is why we have introduced The Capricornian Community Grants Program.

We ask that any non-profit organisation seeking financial support for an event or project apply for sponsorship through The Capricornian Community Grants Program.

Each grant request is assessed individually and is based on our budget, the merit of the application and whether the application has met the criteria outlined for the grant.
