Introduction

RACV exists to improve the lives of Victorians by addressing their needs in the areas of mobility, home and leisure and continuing to be their advocate.

RACV’s Community Donations Program aims to connect Victorians, our members and their communities and leverage existing activities by providing funding support for specific programs and projects.

The Program further extends RACV’s Corporate Responsibility activities and assists in driving greater good for society and greater good for our business so RACV can continue to improve the lives of Victorian communities for generations to come.

The primary goal of the Community Donations Program is to create a more cohesive and connected Victoria – by harnessing the collective power of members and their communities, we can increase social inclusion, cohesion and capital.

Funding may be allocated to not-for-profit community organisations/groups for specific programs or projects which benefit the local community generally, or socially and financially disadvantaged groups in that community.

Area of focus and issue(s) to address

Funding may be considered for activities demonstrating a good fit with RACV’s primary area of focus – a more cohesive and connected Victoria – and which deliver a tangible benefit to the local community. 

The activities should address one or more of the following issues:

  • Social inclusion e.g. an activity that fosters social activity and meaningful social interactions
  • Social cohesion e.g. an activity that encourages an understanding and sharing of cultures
  • Increasing social capital e.g. an activity that connects people and enables the building of relationships and networks

The activities should be targeted to one or more of the following:

  • Under-represented parts of the community
  • Youth (aged 16-25)
  • Rural/regional Victorians

Proposals that may be considered include, local community development and capacity building activities, community leisure initiatives, security, mobility services and environmental programs. The proposal must address an issue and target as per the above.
