Small grants up to $10,000 open soon
This year Greater Shepparton Foundation’s Small Grants program will open on Monday, July 3, 2023.
It is our priority to respond to community need and identify place-based solutions. The best way to see where the need is, is to be out in the community learning and listening to front line service providers and first responders.
In response to our learnings, we have decided to expand our grants program an will be adding two additional focus areas to enable local not for profit organisations to apply for a grant for projects that assist in -
· community flood recovery, and
· projects that reduce the impacts of the cost-of-living crisis
Projects funded in these additional focus areas is possible due to the generous donations made during our Community Flood Recovery Campaign and this year all funds raised as part of our End of Financial Year Appeal will be directed to projects that support the most vulnerable in our community.
Anyone who has, or does, donate via these campaigns can feel confident 100% of all donations made will directly support those grassroots community programs that support those doing it tough.
In addition to the above new focus areas we again encourage applications for local projects in the areas of social inclusion; youth employment, aging well; at risk of or experiencing housing insecurity; safe families and economic engagement.
We know that the need is great so we have also increased the amount of funding that can be applied for this year to up to $10,000.
Our grants program not only allows us to support community led projects that meet an immediate need, the grant program also provide us with a valuable insight into what is being delivered by community and where we might be able to assist in the future.
Applications from organizations that meet our funding criteria are encouraged to apply to our Small Grants Program for their eligible projects.
Grant guidelines will be available next month. If you have a project, you wish to discuss please contact us at email@example.com
