Congratulations to The Ringwood Ballet Group, the October Noel Jones Community Support Program grant recipient. Founded in 1962 The Ringwood Ballet Group has a long and esteemed history of teaching exceptional dance in Melbourne with many past students associated with the Group having gone on to make a career of ballet, first as performers and also as teachers.
Noel Jones is proud to contribute towards initiatives that support the arts in our local communities and Ringwood Ballet Group is a perfect example of this as a not for profit community organisation providing expert training in the art of Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Character and Acrobatic Dance.
Ringwood Ballet Group has shared that the grant will go towards updating technology across their studio.
Noel Jones Community Support Program
The Noel Jones Community Support Program aims to support 3 main groups in our communities:
• Charity Groups and Events
• Junior Sports Stars and Clubs
• Schools and Kinders
Each month one grant of $1000 is awarded with each monthly recipient going into the draw for a further yearly grant of $5000.
A percentage of each sale made through the Noel Jones network is apportioned to Noel Jones CSP to support our local communities.
How to apply for a grant
If your organisation or event falls within our support categories you may apply for a Noel Jones CSP grant. Applicants can apply once per financial quarter, (and will need to reapply each quarter to be reconsidered for the next round of grants) with nominations being judged on the following criteria:
– Groups and organisations that aim to support and strengthen our local communities
– Groups and organisations that are in close proximity to the Noel Jones network
– Groups and organisations that provide opportunities for Noel Jones staff to participate and volunteer
