2019 For Good Foundation Volunteer Awards

Applications close 16thof August 2019


Here at the For Good Foundation we want to give back to those who give. To do that we are launching our inaugural For Good Foundation Volunteer Awards, recognising significant volunteer services and contributions within the South Australian volunteer sector, specifically for those volunteers who deliver support services in the area of domestic abuse and family violence prevention, and after care support.

To be considered for an award, nominees must;

  • Currently be a volunteer.
  • Have consistently volunteered for their cause for at least six months.
  • Be affiliated with volunteer work that aligns to the values of the For Good Foundation.
  • Not receive a wage or salary for the work undertaken.
  • Be able to provide at least 2 reference for their work. Referees must not be related to the nominee.
  • Be an Australian Citizen or permanent resident.
  • Be willing to provide or consent to a criminal history check.

There are many, fantastic and committed volunteers across our State, that give their time and energy to help others, and for this reason we are providing several awards across five categories.

Individuals or Groups involved with or having received support from an outstanding volunteer can nominate them to receive $1,000 and an International Volunteer Day certificate of appreciation.
