CATHERINE BERMINGHAM COMMUNITY BENEFIT FUND

Named after former Brisbane City Councillor, Catherine Bermingham (pictured), who served from 1997 to 2008, the community benefit fund exists to provide funds to local, non-profit community organisations that share our broad social and economic justice agenda. Organisations are chosen by Annerley Branch members, with funds raised by a specially held event. Our most recent recipient was The Romero Centre, which received $1100.

For more information about the Fund and how your organisation could be a recipient, please email info@annerleylabor.org.
