Funding, Donations & Sponsors

The Bungendore Project is estimated to cost between $3 and $4 Million dollars. This includes the purchase of the proposed land and constructing the purpose designed and built house. This budget will be revised when we have a detailed design proposal. The committee is investigating the availability of State and Federal Government funding. The Member for Monaro, Mr John Barilaro MP, has already committed seed funding for the project and has promised his full support.

In March 2017, the project was allocated funding of $500,000 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities fund for Major Infrastructure projects.  This was made possible through the recently amalgamated Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council.  This, along with the leased land will enable the project to commence in earnest.

Our committee continues to raise funds – with several events  in the pipeline.  We hold stalls in the village, selling baked goods, plants, handmade sewn goods and confectionery.

We are forever grateful for the strong support received from our local newspaper – The Bungendore Weekly!

Our first major event was the 2016 August Concert for Bungendore.  Carl Rafferty (Opera by Candlelight) brought his grand piano and singers to Bungendore  for an unforgettable event.  Some photos below – courtesy of The Bungendore Weekly – shows singers and the audience  obviously enjoying the night! There may be another event in 2018! Watch this space!

In September 2016, along with the Southern Harvest Farmer’s Markets, we held our first ever Spring Morning Tea party in Bungendore.  Visitors were treated with Devonshire teas, ‘real’ coffee and a range of sweet treats.
