Grants are a great way to contribute to school and community fundraising. It’s important to know what to look for, where to look and be prepared!

Instead of trying to fit your project into a grants program, we want you to prepare your project for when the RIGHT grant comes up.

Greenline has put together resources for grant applications and will continue to add to these resources. As always we are more than happy to answer any questions and help you put together your project portfolio.

Barnawartha Primary School - Bernadette Kelly

Extremely easy to deal with. Professional service. Very happy with the completed job.

Echuca East Primary School, Jodi Boal

I find engaging with Greenline completely professional. The customer service is exemplary and the three projects I have been involved in with Greenline gives me confidence in their communication, ability to meet deadlines and appease a customer, quality of work, competency in meeting regulations and OHS measures

I have great confidence in this team/company.

Wodonga Primary School, Damian Duncan

I have used Greenline for a number of years now as I have always found them to provide excellent customer service, great quality and reliability.

I have had a number of shade sails installed by Greenline and our most recent project was a covered walkway to provide extra shelter for our students.

From day one, the walkway was such a big hit, with so many students using it that we actually had to provide extra staff in the area for additional student supervision. Thank you Greenline.

Wyndham Central College - Bryan Wollard - Assistant Principal

From my first meeting with a Greenline representative I was very impressed with the professional presentation about the company as well as the work they would do and service they would provide if they were to construct our COLA project.

The process relating to construction was very well explained with timelines, contractors details and security and safety measures put in place. Communication throughout the project was regular and informative. Contractors working on site were very co-operative and professional whilst performing their construction tasks.

Overall, the finished product is absolutely great. It has exceeded all our expectations and is now a real asset for the school.

Greenline did a great job here and I would recommend them to any school wanting to develop a COLA.

Ardeer Primary School - Graham Miller - Principal

Greenline were a pleasure to deal with. Their communication was excellent and we are thrilled with the end product.

Mount Waverley Heights Primary School - Sharon Reiss-Stone - Principal

A huge thank you and congratulations to the team at Greenline for delivering BIG TIME our outdoor shade shelter. The shelter, which covers one of our outdoor basketball courts, gives our students a chance to play through all weather conditions and looks great. Their post project support has been fantastic with quick follow-ups and service to the school.

Croydon Hills Primary School - Christian Holdsworth - Principal

We found Greenline to be professional throughout our entire business relationship, from our initial communications through to the completion of our project. Their friendly, helpful advice was offered with constant consideration of our needs. Greenline were able to meet all deadlines with competency, completing our project with the highest quality of work.
