2023-25 Strategic community sponsorship
Western Bulldogs Community Foundation Nallei Jerring program
We’ve partnered with Western Bulldogs Community Foundation (WBCF) to fund and support the Nallei Jerring Koori leadership program. This sponsorship will provide $75,000 over three years from 2023 to 2025.
The Nallei Jerring program aims to educate, engage and empower young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants living in the West of Victoria through increasing understanding and connection to community, culture, positive self-identity, and leadership.
This is our first Strategic Community Sponsorship under our Thriving Communities grant and sponsorship program, which funds local projects, events and activities that make the region a great place to live. Read the media release.
