SCARBOROUGH and surrounding community and not-for-profit groups will have the opportunity to apply for grants of up to $3000 for the next 12 weeks.

Developer 3 Oceans Property, behind the Iconic Scarborough $450 million, 43-level twin towers project, launched a ‘Community Chest’ project in an effort to “give back” to the community to assist groups and grassroots projects.

The first grant recipient was not-for-profit community centre West Stirling Neighbourhood House (WSNH) to help fund its 30th Anniversary Family Fun Day early next year.

3 Oceans Managing Director Dyno Zhang said eligible projects could include those that support vulnerable groups, equipment for local sporting clubs or funding assistance for community and sporting events

“WSNH is a not-for-profit community centre which co-ordinate many playgroups, events, workshops and support services in response to community needs,” he said.

“3 Oceans is delighted the Iconic Scarborough Community Chest is available to deliver genuine value to such an important local group.”

WSNH co-ordinator Jenni Kopij welcomed the news of the grants program.

“We appreciate the opportunity for an additional pool of funds to support our projects and milestones such as our 30th anniversary,” she said.
