CC-FNQ (Connected Communities Far North Queensland)

Formerly known as BaCC (Building Active Connected Communities) and Cairns Community Enterprise, Connected Communities Far North Queensland (CC-FNQ) was established in May 2009 with the vision to provide an “overall benefit to the community.”

This would be achieved by providing grants to deserving not-for-profit organisations in the Cairns, Gordonvale, Kuranda, Mossman and Port Douglas regions. CC-FNQ understood that many of these organisations are run by volunteers and wanted to provide them with an avenue to receive funding without having to ask for donations or through time-consuming fundraising activities.

Since inception, more than $1,400,000 has been awarded to more than 200 organisations. These grants have funded various projects in the health, education, sporting and community sectors.

CC-FNQ is made up of a board of independent directors. These directors come from a diverse range of industries and disciples, so as to promote the most fair and equitable decision making.
