​​As a part of our commitment to Townsville, Glencore's Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programs fund local organisations and projects committed to benefiting the community of Townsville.

Since 2013, Glencore has invested over $1.5 million into local organisations and projects in Townsville, focussing on key areas of Health, Education, and Capacity Building – the development of enterprise and economic diversification.

Key major projects we have supported in the Townsville community include:

  • Initiatives with the Perc Tucker Regional Gallery
  • LifeFlight Rescue Helicopter
  • Ronald McDonald House Townsville
  • Greater Bilby exhibit at Billabong Sanctuary

We have also regularly sponsored a range of community events including

  • Academic awards at local high schools and James Cook University
  • The Townsville Eisteddfod   
  • Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal

Additional information

We call for CSI applications on a quarterly basis, with funding distributed in January, April, July and October each year.  Applications can be accessed through the link on this page.
