Grant Updates

U3A Ringwood has received the following grants. These grants are important to our aim to keep membership fees low and for providing services to our community, our members and our tutors.

Maroondah City Council

U3A Ringwood Inc acknowledges the ongoing support of Maroondah City Council’s Community Grants Funding Program. Their 2020/21 grant of $750 will largely cover our ongoing printing costs.

Be Connected

U3A Ringwood is a partner of the Federal Government’s Be Connected program, provided by the Good Things Foundation, and offers FREE basic computer classes.

We have been awarded a Be Connected Digital Devices grant of $5,000. The grant is a one-off grant to help fund organisations, within the Be Connected Network, to loan devices and data to socially isolated or disadvantaged learners over 50.

As a result, we have purchased, and are able to offer, eight new Android tablets which come pre-connected to the internet – no home internet required.
