5 x $10K Community Grants Available

At Grace, we recognise that if not for our local community, we would not have thrived over the years. So, it’s definitely time to give more back.

During this round of the 2016 Grace Gives Grants, five deserving community groups will receive $10,000 to help them help their local community.


What are we looking for:

Something a little different! We’re interested in hearing from community groups that:

  • Focus on communities which are excluded or disadvantaged
  • Create relationships and environments where people are empowered to help themselves and each other
  • Actively involve people and communities
  • Build inclusiveness
  • Involve approaches that are likely to bring about solutions to complex problems


Who is Eligible:

To be eligible, your community group must be a legal entity within Australia and fit into one or more of the categories below:

  • A not-for-profit community organisation
  • A registered charity with the ACNC
  • A deductible gift recipient
  • A social enterprise
