We specialise in assisting emerging organisations whose work is driven by the communities they serve. We also support established organisations that play a critical role as leaders in Australia’s social and environmental justice movements. And finally, we support organisations in need of rapid assistance to respond to an imminent social justice issue.
Our grants include a mix of one-year and multi-year commitments. We understand that the path to creating transformational change is not linear, which is why our funding is flexible and allows groups to change tack as needed.
Funding requests are reviewed and approved on a quarterly basis by our Trustees, with the exception of rapid response grants, which can be approved out of session. We currently do not run open calls for proposals, and instead solicit funding requests through our networks in philanthropy and civil society. However, we encourage organisations whose work aligns with our focus areas to get in touch through submitting an expression of interest.
