In response to the COVID-19 crisis they are modifying their approach for 2020. While their aim remains to provide high impact grants that will make a significant and measurable difference to an under-served cause or population, their intention in 2020 is to help ensure smaller non-profits in community are well placed to continue providing widespread benefits into the future.
Applications are invited that assist “Families, young people and children at risk” in the Greater Sydney region. This encompasses key areas of need including, but not limited to: domestic and family violence, women’s shelters, refugees and asylum seekers, homelessness, poverty, mental health. In 2020 they will particularly focus on non-profits helping vulnerable communities impacted by COVID-19.
