First launched in 2011, Arrow’s flagship community investment program is designed to support grassroots organisations in the areas where the natural gas company operates, providing funding for a range of community building events and activities.

Arrow Energy’s Vice President for Safety, Sustainability and People, Rachael Cronin, said Brighter Futures aimed to support local projects that make a positive impact in their communities.

“We believe in building a brighter future for the communities where we operate,” Rachael said.

“Since we started the program in 2011, we have distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars in community grants and small-scale investments such as community events, facility upgrades, sporting equipment, training workshops and safety campaigns.

“It’s a fantastic way for Arrow to support the communities which support us.”

Rachael said the program was open to all not-for-profit community organisations in the Western Downs or Toowoomba regional council areas.

“There are many wonderful organisations across the Darling Downs doing incredible work to support their local communities,” she said.

Brighter Futures offers these groups the opportunity to access financial support for events and activities that benefit their communities.”

Applications must relate to at least one of the following focus areas: health, safety and wellbeing, active lifestyle, community connection, learning and education, environment or Indigenous partnerships.

Schools and kindergartens, aged care facilities, sporting clubs, community associations and charities are all eligible to apply.

“Our community grants are designed to empower local organisations and initiatives that align with our commitment to health, education and the environment,” Rachael said.

“Together, we can build stronger, healthier and more sustainable communities.”

Applications for the 2024 Brighter Futures community grants program are open until 12 July 2024.

Brighter Futures is part of Arrow’s social investment program, which has distributed around $2 million over the past five years in areas including community health, education and Indigenous support.
