Commemoration Activities

Ex- service organisations, local communities and schools support Queensland's ANZAC Day appeal each year to generate funds for our patriotic work. The ADCC's system of commemorative grants and subsidies represents a very tangible return of donations to the community. The following examples contain links to appropriate application forms for projects within Queensland. Please check our Memorial Grants and Subsidies Limits policy before examining the possibility of applying for a grant or subsidy.

MEMORAIL PLAQUE. Does your local facility hold ANZAC commemorative services, but not have a memorial around which to assemble? The ADCC has developed a program which, in conjunction with local committees will further its aim to establish a memorial in various facilities within Queensland. It is suggested that a memorial garden containing a rock be established in conjunction with the local councils/committees and businesses. This can be achieved by donations and self help. A bronze memorial plaque will be supplied free by the ADCC as its contribution to the memorial. [More information and Application Form]

GRAVE MEMORIALS. It is a little known fact that, before the Australian War Graves Commission was established, the ANZAC Day Commemoration Committee of Queensland provided funds for the graves of our fallen in foreign lands. Today, the Commission cares for both this and those who die subsequently from a war related illness or disease. However, for the many who are not covered by these guidelines, the ADCC gives small bronze memorial badges for grave and crematorium niche recognition of a veteran's service. There are also subsidies available for headstones, lawn cemetery and crematorium plaques. [Application for Grave Memorial Grant]
