Applications are now open for the next round of the St George Foundation Community Grants program. These grants invest in projects that will improve the lives of children in Australia who are physically, socially or economically disadvantaged, and partner with small community organisations who attract little funding from government and that aren’t big enough to generate significant fundraising income on their own.

To be eligible for funding your organisation will:

  • Focus its efforts on children in Australia under the age of 18 years
  • Be located in NSW, ACT, QLD or WA
  • Have an annual gross revenue of less than $3,000,000
  • Receive less than 40% of its income from state, federal or local government funding (unless it has an income less than $1million per annum, in which case Government funding can exceed 40%)
  • Provide recent, signed audited financial statements
  • Be endorsed as a deductible gift recipient (but not another ancillary fund). Deductible Gift Recipients must be listed with the Australian Taxation Office under Item 1 of the Table in Section 30–15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act, 1936

What can be funded:

Children's projects in NSW, ACT, QLD, WA, including:

  • Early intervention services
  • Educational equipment and assistance
  • Youth workers
  • Recreational and respite programs
  • Counselling and therapy
  • Medical equipment

Closing date: 29 September 2017
