HMMS donations

CBH is committed to safer roads and supporting rural communities. Through the Harvest Mass Management Scheme (HMMS), Western Australian growers are able to support charities that play a key role in their communities.

About HMMS

Developed by CBH in conjunction with Main Roads WA, HMMS seeks to reduce the instances of overloaded grain trucks arriving at CBH receival sites. During harvest, growers can forfeit grain from overloaded trucks, which is then sold and the resulting funds provided to WA charities.

Since the program began in 2012, more than $1.8 million has been donated to charities active in rural communities.

Nominating a charity

Nominations of up to three charities per year can be made by CBH grower members and CBH employees and must:

  • Fit with CBH's purpose, values and behaviour
  • Contribute to the vitality, development, wellbeing and/or safety of grain growing regions
  • Have value and relevance to our growers, communities and employees
  • A registered charity (governing body to be nominated, not individual branches)

The HMMS scheme cannot receive nominations to support:

  • Individual clubs or groups
  • Individual charity branches
  • Individual persons
  • Events
  • Individual or team requests
  • Religious purposes
  • Government entities
  • Public or private companies
  • Political groups or parties

All nominations must be the governing body of a registered charity.
