Gardiner Dairy Foundation Working in Dairy Communities Small Grants

Investing in the communities that make up the dairy industry is critical to the industry’s sustainability.

Gardiner Dairy Foundation is committed to strengthening Victorian dairy communities and partners with FRRR to provide a $100,000 annual fund that awards $5,000 grants for innovative, community-driven projects.

These grants aim to strengthen small Victorian dairy communities, help build their capacity to deal with local issues, and enhance existing community infrastructure.


The 2015 program is now closed.

Grant recipients have now been announced for each of the three Victorian dairy regions - Gippsland, south-western or northern Victoria.

A decision regarding the funding was approved by both Boards, and grant recipients attended a formal presentation ceremony in July to receive their grant.
