Jetstar’s Flying Start program offers $30,000 grants for charity and community groups across Australia
Jetstar’s Flying Start Program is offering not-for-profits and community groups across Australia grants of up to $30,000 to make a positive difference.
On top of the $15,000 cash grant for the organisation and $15,000 worth of travel, the recipient will be provided with national and local media coverage and the promotion of its advocacy on Jetstar’s website and Facebook page.
“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,” the Jetstar Flying Start program website said.
“The community group or organisation should have a specific project in mind for how the grant will be used to benefit their local community.
Organisation will be judged on the extent to which it is seeking grant funding to help “enhance the lives of people in their local community” and how the Jetstar Flying Start grant will maximise benefits in specific relation to tangible projects or activities.
Charities and community groups will also be judged on the extent to which it is seeking grant funding to help “enhance the lives of people in their local community” and how the Jetstar Flying Start grant will maximise the benefits via its projects or activities.
The grants are offered twice a year with its next round due to close for applications on September 30. The panel consists of Jetstar’s Chief Legal Counsel, Joanna Brand, Chief Customer Officer, Catriona Larritt and COO for Australia and New Zealand, Dean Salter.
“Our staff do their very best, every day to get you where you want to go, and to ensure every Jetstar experience you have is enjoyable as possible. But there are some people who need more from us than just low fares,” Jetstar Flying Stuart said.
