We are committed to providing financial support to the local community by way of a DDWF Community Fund.

The aim of the DDWF Community Fund is to support small, non-profitable organisations and individuals in and around the DDWF area by providing funding towards projects, goods or services that benefit the broader community.

Funding for Dundonnell Public Hall restoration

Tilt Renewables has committed to providing $50,000 annually for the life of the Project, commencing at the commercial operations date of the Dundonnell Wind Farm. The Moyne Shire Council has approved the request from the community for an interest-free loan of $250,000 for the Dundonnell Hall Committee for the development of a shared meeting facility and CFA Shed at the existing site of the Dundonnell Public Hall.

Voted on and endorsed by the DDWF Community Fund Committee, for a period of 11 years, 50% of the Dundonnell Wind Farm Community Fund ($25,000 per annum) will be set aside for the purpose of servicing the loan. Commencing from January 2022, the DDWF Community Fund will continue to operate with two application periods for the remaining $25,000. Grants will still be advertised for up to $25,000 in Round 1, however Round 2 application period may not have the equivalent of funding available.

The DDWF Community Fund is administered by the DDWF Community Fund Committee. (See section below)
