Community Grants

Grants are made to community groups each year using the income generated from the invested funds. As the funds grow, more is available for distribution. When grant rounds are open, the Foundation encourages groups to propose a wide variety of projects for funding. Grants are assessed under ACNC rules and the value of each project to the local community is taken into account.
