The Noosa Council assists community and not for profit groups by making funding available to assist with some of the general running costs. The benefit enables the Group to use its fundraising income to plan future projects for its members, visitors and the community. The Cooroy-Noosa Genealogical Group has been awarded a three year Community Alliance Grant for 2019 -2021.
The Group acknowledges and thanks Noosa Council for its support and its commitment to the many groups and community activities within the Council area.
