Funding is available for grants from $1,000 to $40,000 for suitable projects and programs. There will also be two grants provided from $40,000 to $100,000. Organisations can apply only once.
While generally the $1,000 to $40,000 grants are for a one-off activity which can be completed within 12 months and do not imply continuing support, the Foundation will consider applications for projects or programs for multiple years, with a maximum annual grant of $40,000.
The two grants between $40,000 and $100,000 may also be delivered over multiple years. Organisations applying for grants up to $100,000 will be required to present their case for funding at a face to face interview with members of the Foundation Grants Committee Review Panel. To optimise outcomes, the grant recommends contact with the Chief Executive Officer to discuss large grant or multiyear projects before applying.
