Up to $30,000 is available for Not for Profit organisations to fund projects that make a positive impact in their community.
Jetstar’s Flying Start Program invites community groups and organisations across Australia to apply for a grant to fund a project that will enrich the lives of people in their local community.
All grants will consist of the same elements, to ensure fairness and transparency. Each grant will be worth $30,000, comprising $15,000 cash and $15,000 worth of Jetstar travel.
Entry is open to not-for-profit community groups and organisations of any size, who are seeking funding to help enhance the lives of people in their local community; and can be classified into one of the following categories.
The community group or organisation should have a specific project in mind for how the grant will be used to benefit their local community.
Applications close 31 March 2016.
Jetstar Australia & New Zealand CEO David Hall said the airline was thrilled to be launching this initiative to Australian communities.
“This is about helping groups of people with big ideas to grow, thrive and quite literally go places. The program will allow Jetstar to make a meaningful contribution to the communities we fly to,” Mr Hall said.
Entries will be reviewed each quarter by a panel of judges including Austereo’s Fox FM radio host, Jules Lund, television personality, Gorgi Coghlan, CEO Jetstar Australia & New Zealand, David Hall, Jetstar Management Pilot, Jeremy Schmidt and a member of the local Jetstar team in each relevant state or territory.
“I’m passionate about helping improve the lives of everyday Aussies. I can speak for the whole panel when I say we are looking forward to making a difference and helping community groups take their great work to the next level further!” said Jules Lund.
