Coastline Credit Union is committed to growing local youth participation in arts. Schools and teachers are encouraged to apply to the Coastline Community Foundation to help assist with costs associated with attendance at Glasshouse Education events.

The Coastline Community Foundation is just one of the ways CCU shows tangible support to our local communities – by aiding organisations that benefit the local communities. The Foundation provides funding to groups such as:

  • Volunteer Organisations;
  • Family Organisations;
  • Community Organisations;
  • Sporting Organisations;
  • Youth; and
  • Education.

Since its inauguration in 2001, the Coastline Community Foundation has given back over $1,000,000 to not-for-profit groups within the Macleay, Hastings and Manning Valleys.

The Foundation will provide financial support to assist with costs directly associated with accessing the Education @ Glasshouse Program.

Some of the ways in which the Foundation can help your school include:

  • Ticket costs
  • Workshops being delivered on school campuses
  • Costs of teacher’s professional development opportunities
  • Assist with costs associated with special needs / disadvantaged groups
