Initiatives and funding
City of Gold Coast (City) provides a number of funding programs and initiatives to assist incorporated not-for-profit community organisations that support the Gold Coast community.

The Divisional Donations Program supports and stimulates projects, activities, equipment or operational functions that have a divisional or local focus.
