Communities

Collgar Wind Farm (Collgar) has a genuine interest in building the capacity and long-term sustainability of the communities in which it operates. The Collgar Community Fund (CCF), established by Collgar, provides funding to local initiatives that benefit the Shire of Merredin and surrounding areas. Since 2012, CCF has donated more than $900,000 to groups in Merredin and surrounding areas.

Through the CCF, Collgar supports initiatives that strengthen the local community through programs that make a positive and lasting contribution.

A Grants Committee has been appointed to assess applications and determine how best to allocate funds and in-kind contributions to maximise benefits for the community.
