New faces wanted

Would you enjoy being part of a group that gives out funds to local groups? Then Mt Alexander Community Enterprise would love to have you join their small band of grant givers.
Mt ACE has received and distributed over $350,000 to local groups and projects since its inception and all raised without a single cake stall or sausage sizzle! 
Their funds come from a partnership agreement with Bendigo Bank and Bendigo Telco and the group’s role is to decide how to distribute these monthly funds received.
Mt ACE meet about six times per year to assess grant applications and choose community projects to support. It’s a great feeling to be helping so many local clubs achieve their goals.
If you would like to be part of the group please contact Mt ACE committee secretary Robyn Lewis at
