How long will it take to process my application?

Please allow a minimum of eight weeks for us to consider your grant application and make a decision. Grant applicants will be informed in writing as to whether their application has been successful.

How will my application be reviewed?

All grant applications are reviewed by our Net Proceeds Committee on a monthly basis. To be considered for a grant, your application must meet our authorised purpose.

Can I apply for more than one grant?

Yes, however you must complete a separate application for each grant. Each grant will be considered individually.

Can I reapply after my application has been declined?

You can apply for grants as many times as you wish, even if your application has been previously declined. However, you must complete a new application form each time you apply.

Do I need to keep receipts for goods and services purchased?

Yes. You will be required to submit receipts for all goods and services purchased.

How much money can I apply for?

There is no limit to the size of the grant you can apply for. However, all applications must be supported by a full cost breakdown and competitive quotes for any goods and services to be purchased.

Can I also apply for grants from other organisations?

Yes, you can apply for grants from multiple organisations but you must declare this on your application form. If you receive funds from more than one organisation for the same purpose, you must repay any portion of the grant that exceeds the total amount required.

Can I apply for a retrospective grant?

No.  Funds cannot cover costs which have been paid for before the application is approved at our board meeting.  All grants should be applied for at least eight weeks in advance of when the funds are required.

Will you pay for overseas travel?

Yes, we will fund airfares, but we do not pay for fuel, taxes and surcharges.

Can I purchase goods from overseas?
