Fonterra Grass Roots Fund Australia
Supporting the communities that support us.
The Fonterra Grass Roots Fund supports Australian communities where we operate by funding their smart ideas, projects and initiatives.
Through the fund, we aim to sustain healthy, vibrant communities by sponsoring ideas, projects, and initiatives that make a real impact.
Our communities are integral to our business, which is why Fonterra is dedicated to giving back to the community through the Fonterra Grass Roots Fund. Since 2011 we have supported over 340 initiatives that focus on bringing communities together, caring for the environment and promoting healthy lifestyles and dairy nutrition.
Our sponsorship funding has helped to build school vegetable gardens, supported sports, community and surf lifesaving clubs, and aided the purchase of essential equipment for emergency response services.
The fund opens the doors for a wide range of community projects with grants of between $500 and $5000. To be considered for support, your initiative or activity must fit within the categories and criteria outlined below.
1. Bringing communities together
2. Caring for our environment
3. Promoting healthy lifestyles and dairy nutrition
Applications are now open for the next round of sponsorship.
