12 grants totalling over $37,327 were presented to charities in Toowoomba through QCF’s regional grant making program.

TRCF chair Joy Mingay said the Committee had been challenged in its recommendations as the pool of applicants this year was the strongest yet.

“It goes to show, that it is more important than ever, we as a community continue to build this fund to meet the needs of our local charities.  We are delighted with the outcome this year, but encourage Toowoomba donors to rally and ‘give where you live’,” she said.

Ms Mingay said donations and bequests to the QCF for the Toowoomba Regional Community Fund are invested to build the capital of the Fund, with the income providing a valuable and sustainable source of funding for the greater good of the community.
