Applications for the Adroit Golf Day Capital Grant are now closed.  The successful grant applicant will be announced early August 2017.


Adroit Insurance Group will host its 16th Annual Charity Golf Day at 13th Beach Golf Links, Barwon Heads on 23rd November 2017. Since its inception, the event has grown to one of the largest in the Geelong fundraising calendar, raising over $900,000 for local causes.

Adroit has enjoyed a long-term relationship with the Geelong Community Foundation, including as community partner of the Adroit Charity Golf Day. In this role the Foundation has supported Adroit to distribute funds raised to worthy local causes, for example $61,000 of the $100,000 total raised in 2016 was donated to Barwon Child Youth & Family (BCYF) to fund the refurbishment of the Street Surfer Bus.

In previous years funds have been donated to projects such as the development of the St Laurence Sensory Garden Project, Karingal Life Long Learning & Education room and St John of God Hospital. The funds raised from this charity event have supported many projects and will have far reaching benefits in our community for many years to come.

The establishment of the $100,000 Adroit Golf Day Capital Grant Program will provide a new significant grant opportunity for community organisations. The Foundation will offer the Adroit Golf Day Capital Grant Program to community organisations based on a number of requirements.

The 2017 Adroit Golf Day Grant Agreement form should be reviewed before completing this application. The Adroit Golf Day Capital Grant Program will receive applications up to the value of $100,000.
