    Digital First - New Granting System

    Application Forms

    Following a great deal of consultation, feedback, research and planning, we worked with a number of strategic consultants to develop a new application framework for our grant seekers.

    What does that mean for you? If you’re applying for a small amount, your application will be short and require less supplementary information. If you’re applying for a large amount, your application will be more detailed and need more supplementary information.

    The new framework is designed to save you some time, and provide more meaningful information for our Trustees to make their decisions. The applications are categorised into three tiers:

    • Grants under $15,000
    • Grants between $15,000 and $100,000
    • Grants $100,000+

    What should you do now?

    You can find a link to apply for funding under "Grants Open Now." Use this link to find specific information on the Trust open for applications, as well as an online application form. After you’ve started an application, you’ll receive an email. Please read the instructions provided in that and all subsequent emails carefully. You can also find helpful information on our FAQs tab for each Trust you apply for.

    Tips before you get started:

    • You’ll need to create a new login for each Trust you apply for. This is because accountability reports have to be submitted using the individual links sent to you via email after the grant has been approved. However, you are able to see the status of all Trusts you’ve applied for while being logged into one Trust.
    • To return to your incomplete application, follow the link in the first email we send you. Don’t start another application.
    • You may skip to other questions by clicking on the different steps on the left menu in the application.

    Important Note: Unsubmitted applications will be automatically declined. Please ensure you’ve submitted your application by the due date.
