If you are intending to apply for a Community grant you must call the Executive Officer to discuss your request before preparing a formal application. All applications must be completed online.

Please note that there has been a change to the 2017 Community Grants Program.  Applications for Emergency Relief and Food Aid are no longer accepted within this program.  The Foundation is now providing support for these two areas within an ‘invitation only’ Emergency Relief program.  Organisations will be contacted directly in regard to this program.
