Morawa Community Trust

Calling for Funding Submissions

Under an agreement with Midwest Corporation Limited, a Public Benefit Agreement has been established to support the Morawa community. To be known as the Morawa Community Trust (MCT), the quarterly allocation of funds will assist groups that are able to demonstrate that their activities benefit the Morawa community.

This Fund is administered by the Shire of Morawa under the direction of a Committee consisting of the Shire President, two members of the Morawa community appointed by the Council, and a representative of Midwest Corporation Limited. The current community members of the Morawa Community Trust Committee are Ms Marie Marks and Mrs Bronwyn Thornton. If you have any queries regarding the fund please feel free to contact either of these committee members.

Since 2006, the Morawa Community Trust has proven to be a very successful program that has so far delivered in excess of $300,000 in funding to 29 different community projects during the past 4 years. These projects include:
