Community Investment

KEPCO invests in strategic community-based projects through its Community Investment Fund and makes annual contributions to worthwhile local initiatives via a strategic funding program. To date, KEPCO has given almost $600,000 to the local community via its sponsorship/donations and strategic funding programs. Some of the groups and events supported by KEPCO are shown below.

KEPCO is committed to being a good corporate citizen and will continue to support worthwhile initiatives in the project area. Community groups and organisations in Bylong, Rylstone, Mudgee and Kandos are encouraged to apply for funding or in-kind support from KEPCO’s Community Investment Fund for events, programs and initiatives that support the community.

Individual organisations can apply for up to $3,000 of funding to support events, programs and initiatives that benefit the local community.
