Frequently Asked Questions
The most important thing to remember is to complete the application either on the downloadable form, or through our online application portal (online applications are preferred). Please ensure to include a 300 word document with your organisation’s official letterhead as a part of the submission. Aim to be as specific as you can with regards to what your project is, and how it is going to benefit the community should you be successful. The more specific and more information you can provide, the better! Make sure to include both an email and a mobile phone for someone in the organisation so we can reach you if you are successful!
You can apply for whatever amount your organisation’s project requires. However, please remember we will be giving out grants of up to $10,000. Of course, the amount you apply for needs to be justified in your application.
Once our grant application submission period closes on the 19th August, they are then given to our Board of Directors for their assessment, review and approval. Please note that this can take anywhere up to 6 weeks. We will always contact you regardless of whether you’ve been successful or not, so make sure to include both an email address and mobile phone contact in your application.
We try to give as much as we can to as many people as we can. Every application is presented to the Board and analysed thoroughly. If you have applied in the past and you didn’t receive a grant, please don’t let this deter you. Apply again this year!
If you’ve been successful, you will receive an email with an invitation to our official Community Grants ceremony where you will receive your funding. You will also be required to submit a financial acquittal once your funds have been spent.
Yes, they are!
Unfortunately, no. We’re unable to provide any feedback about any detail on your application. The Board’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
