We received an overwhelming number of applications for our 2019 program highlighting the need for further funding across the sector. That’s why in 2020 we are continuing with the theme of building capacity for impact.
Building capacity of not-for-profit organisations can include, but is not limited to:
- acquisition of staff to deliver a project
- training and development of new or existing staff to deliver a project
- software development to improve existing capability or capacity of the project
Grants of $25,000 or $50,000 are available.
In addition to monetary grants, this year’s program will also include five in-kind strategic impact grants to help not-for-profits build capacity in their organisations.
These grants will provide in-kind services and support to not-for-profit organisations to improve their projects and could include:
- marketing and communications support
- governance sessions
- accounting and financial planning advice
- impact measurement
- government relations
Five x 20 hour in-kind strategic impact grants are available. To be considered for these grants, applicants must apply for a social investment grant and complete the additional questions in the application.
Organisations will be notified of the outcome of their application by early December 2020.
