Each year Goldenfields Water contributes towards local communities within our constituent councils of Junee, Cootamundra-Gundagai, Bland, Hilltops, Temora, Coolamon and Narrandera.
In 2018/19, we proudly donated over $221,000 to help many local eligible community organisations with their drinking water supply costs, to install community drinking water refill stations and to support educational initiatives within the various schools, preschools and TAFE campuses that depend on us for drinking water.
See below for more information on how we support our local community!
All state and private schools, preschools and TAFE institutes within each of our constituent council areas receive a donation of $200 per annum which is applied towards the cost of prizes and/or awards to students in order to acknowledge their dedication towards their studies.
Overall in 2018/19, we donated $13,800 to our local schools, preschools and TAFE's.

Overall in 2018/19, we donated $51,215 towards this project.
