The Foundation seeks to positively impact and enhance the lives of Australians and will support those organisations who demonstrate they can make meaningful and lasting contributions to the community.
The current areas of focus is for programs that support health & well being and the education of children and youth.
Although the Foundation does not specify a minimum or maximum funding amount, it generally provides small donations up to $20,000.
The Foundation has two rounds of funding per annum.
- The first round opens on 1st February and closes at 5pm Melbourne time on 15th March.
- The second round opens on 1st August and closes at 5pm Melbourne time on 15th September.
Any application (including all supporting documentation) received after a round of funding has closed will not be considered.
Notification will be provided to both successful and unsuccessful applicants by the end of June and December respectively.
Whilst the Foundation has a strong preference for Victorian grantees, they will occasionally consider applications from interstate organisations.
- Only charitable organisations that hold both DGR and TCC status are eligible to apply for a grant. Applications received from organisations that do not hold both endorsements will not be considered.
- Funding is available only to organisations that are based in Australia.
The Trustees do not provide Grants for Salaries/Wages for existing grantee staff. Where an approved program requires specialist staff to be employed, the cost should be identified in the program cost and will be considered.
Only one submission per organisation will be considered at any one time.
The Foundation will only provide funding once in any 12 month period.
