Here for Gladstone

About

Since our establishment in 2002, we have invested $6.35 million into the Gladstone community on a wide range of projects. This funding has also helped community organisations secure additional grants and contributions in excess of $10 million.

The projects we support have four things in common—project need is determined by our independent research, the projects tackle the root cause of an issue, results are trackable, and the projects are independently sustainable in the future.

Supported primarily by Rio Tinto, Boyne Smelters Limited and Queensland Alumina Limited (QAL), Here for Gladstone is governed by a Board made up of community and business leaders.
