Manor Lakes Community Fund awards $30,000 to local community groups

Twenty local not-for-profit groups from within the Manor Lakes area have been awarded a share of $30,000 at Manor Lakes Community Fund evening, run by the Dennis Family Corporation.

This year’s event marks 21 years of Community Funds and over $1.2 million distributed across Dennis Family Corporation’s residential estates in Melbourne and Queensland since the concept was introduced in the early 2000s.

Held at Manor Lakes’ Sales Centre, Dennis Family Group Chief Executive Officer, Peter Levinge hosted the event, which has become an annual highlight for the community developer.

“The Dennis Family Corporation has a long history of seeking to help others in less fortunate circumstances,” commented Mr Levinge. “In keeping with this philosophy of giving, Dennis Family Corporation founder, Bert Dennis, established the first of our residential estate Community around 20 years ago.”

“Our Community Fund is an important way of supporting and giving back to the neighbourhoods we create – and to have provided more than $1.2 million in grants across our history is something we are very proud of,” Mr Levinge added.

Community groups from within the Manor Lakes area were encouraged to apply in early September, with the application process concluding on 30 September. The successful groups were each awarded a financial grant for their future projects and to aid in the success of the community.

Any groups that missed out are encouraged to apply to the 2024 fund.
