2023 Grants

Commonwealth Bank Community Donations Program 

We were successful in winning the community vote as Torquay's favourite organisation! We received a $500 funding boost from the Commonwealth Bank Community Donations Program. The Commonwealth Bank is committed to supporting organisations like the Surf Coast Toy Library who make a difference in communities. We used this generous grant to purchase a new flag and sandwich board to improve our visibility in the community. 

Jump Start!

We're partnering with VicHealth to support the health and wellbeing of young people! 


VicHealth is giving 180 local ideas a JumpStart! In creating vibrant, active and connected communities of young people, all across the state, from a share of more than $3.5 million.

And ours is one of them!

Jump, throw and roll with Surf Coast kids will provide sports, gymnastics, athletics and active play equipment to support our member's physical development and social wellbeing. The project will ensure Surf Coast Toy Library offers kids a variety of ways to be fit and healthy and have access to necessary equipment to use community facilities.

2021 Grants


Covid-19 Recovery Grants Program
We were successful in obtaining a $1000 COVID-19 Recovery Grant from the Surf Coast Shire, which enabled us to purchase a new laptop. A new laptop allows us to streamline our administration process and provide ease of use for volunteers. It made a significant contribution to the toy library's ongoing viability as a volunteer-run community service and accelerate our recovery from the COVID pandemic.
