The Nexus Together community giving program has now closed. Applications for this program were from not-for-profit groups along the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project corridor that support positive community outcomes in health, safety, education or the environment.

Grants of up to $4000 have been provided for projects, events or initiatives that will take place within 12 months of receiving funds.

The Nexus Together program recognises the link between building a safer, faster and more efficient road for the region, and supporting the groups which are also working hard to benefit the local community.

To be eligible, not-for-profit groups must have:

  • offered a community contribution to health, safety, education or the environment
  • been a not-for-profit
  • been an incorporated legal entity or sponsored by an incorporated legal entity
  • operated or provide services within five kilometres of the project corridor
  • appropriate insurance, and adhere to sound workplace health and safety practices.

Funding rounds

Applications were accepted throughout the year and Nexus evaluated sponsorship requests in May and November for Autumn and Spring funding rounds.

Big congratulations to our successful applicants in the fourth and final round of the Nexus Together sponsorship program.

It was very difficult to choose between many valuable projects and we thank those people who made a submission for their time and effort.

The following four finalists were successful and Nexus looks forward to being part of these community initiatives:
