VOLUNTEER GRANTS now open!

What is on offer?

The always-popular Volunteer Grants funding program is back for 2016!

The Federal Government has confirmed that $10 million will be made available to community organisations to help them support the efforts of their volunteers.

Eligible organisations could apply for grants of between $1000 and $5000. Those grants can be used to buy much-needed equipment that supports groups’ work, helps train volunteers or improve fundraising efforts.

The 2016 program will give particular priority to “organisations working in disadvantaged communities and those affected by natural disasters.”

Applications for the Volunteer Grants program close on December 20.
