Voluntary Multi-donor Fund offering up to 100,000 USD to NGOs
Applications to the RACQ Foundation are expected to be for amounts of up to $50,000, with grants of up to $100,000 considered in exceptional circumstances only.
Applicants may only receive a grant once every 12 months. Applicants which have received grant approval in the previous 12-month period, will not be considered.
To be eligible for funding your organisation must meet each of the criteria outlined below:
Your organisation must be either:
a small to medium community organisation; or
a charity or other organisation with a charitable purpose.
The project must benefit Queenslanders who have been significantly affected by flood, other weather event or natural disaster or seek to prevent such events from negatively impacting on Queensland communities.
The project must be completed within 12 months of grant approval.
The grant must be used to:
pay for material items or something tangible; or
have a positive community impact; or
cover the costs incurred by the organisation in relation to the cleaning and restoration of property with any disaster mitigation works forming a component of the overall grant.
Organisations that have not considered appropriate insurance requirements to ensure their assets have adequate insurance coverage (or the available level of insurance), may not be able to obtain a grant for these assets.
Where a third party is responsible for repairing or building infrastructure and items and not the organisation (for example a landlord under lease or a local government authority), the third party is responsible for making these repairs or constructions, whether or not covered by insurance, and the organisation is not eligible to make a claim for assistance from the Foundation for these items.
The RACQ Foundation Trustee Board may, in its absolute discretion, resolve to provide a grant to organisations that do not strictly meet the above criteria and may provide grants in addition to the cap.
