Locals. Backing locals.

For over 15 years, Orange Credit Union has offered a Community Support Grants Program for community groups and individuals who are seeking financial assistance for various causes, projects, events, resources and support. Orange Credit Union is proud to support projects, programs and events that align with the mission and vision of OCU, and are making a significant contribution to the community and the lives of others.

Grants are available of up to a maximum amount of $5,000 (including GST) per application unless agreed by the Committee. Projects must provide enduring value to the community and have key project deliverables. 

Applications are required to be made via the online application form below. Only applications submitted during the application opening times and before the deadline will be accepted for assessment. The following groups are eligible to apply:

• Incorporated not-for-profit organisations, community group or registered charity

• Commercial entities may be considered, however they must demonstrate significant benefit to the community
